Grokbase Groups Hive user August 2010
Hi, I was searching for materials about permissions and different users
in Hive, but I can't hardly find nothing. I have few questions about
this issue:

1. Permissions and owners of tables are set only on HDFS or in Hive also?

2. How can I use Hive in client mode as a user different than user
hadoop? Client connects to Thrift server on server side, which usually
runs as user hadoop and all operations are done as user hadoop.

3. How can I run Hive on server machine as user different than hadoop?
When I create other user, that even has group hadoop, I get exception:

Exception in thread "main" Permission denied
at Method)
at org.apache.hadoop.util.RunJar.main(

even when I change permissions to all Hive log and history directories.
