> Renaming a table changes the location of the table to the default location of the database,
followed by the table name.  This means that if the default location of the database uses
a different scheme/authority, an exception will get thrown attempting to move the data.
> Instead, the table's location should be made the default location of the database followed
by the table name, but using the original location's scheme and authority.
> This only applies for managed tables, and there is already a check to ensure the new
location doesn't already exist.
> This is analogous to what was done for partitions in HIVE-2875
