Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-2032) create database does not honour warehouse.dir in dbproperties
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2011 13:39:05 GMT


Amareshwari Sriramadasu commented on HIVE-2032:

Use cases make sense. But, drop database would remove tables only from new location. 
Does anyone have the idea why alter Database currently allows to change only DB properties?

bq.Post altering, new tables will be created under new location. Old tables' have the fully
qualified location in metadata and they should continue to work as before.
Thiruvel, did you get a chance to test this? Because, your changes in patch does not look
complete. Changes should be propagated to PersistentManager through ObjectStore.

> The above command does not set location of 'db' to 'loc'. It instead creates 'db.db'
under the warehouse directory configured in hive-site.xml of CLI. Looks conflicting with HIVE-1820's
expectation. If scratch dir is specified here, that is honoured.
