Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-2874) Renaming external partition changes location
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 21:56:38 GMT
Renaming external partition changes location

                 Key: HIVE-2874
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Kevin Wilfong

Renaming an external partition will change the location of that partition to the default location
of a managed partition with the same name.

E.g. If ex_table is external and has partition part=1 with location /.../managed_table/part=1

Calling ALTER TABLE ex_table PARTITION (part = '1') RENAME TO PARTITION (part = '2');

Will change the location of the partition to /.../ex_table/part=2
