Subject RE: Hive questions about the meta db
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2008 21:26:18 GMT
Hi Edward,

Can you send us the contents of /tmp/<username>/hive.log. Also lets open a JIRA for
this and carry out the discussion there - even if this is not a bug (which it may turn out
to be), NullPointerException is not the most useful user visible message, so atleast that
we should fix...

>>  <name>hive.metastore.local</name>
>> <value>true</value>

Why would I set this property to true? My goal is to store the meta data in an external database.
It i set this to true the metabase is created in the working directory.
