> Permission to create a database must be given to any user, with the following caveats
> - The user must have HDFS rights to create a directory in the Hive warehouse
> directory, if no database location is specified;
> - or the user must own the directory provided in the database location specification
> (in this case it is recommended but not required that the group of the directory be
> hive, so that the hive user has access to the data in the database);
> - and if the database is owned by a role (rather than a user) the directory must be
> owned by the hive user.
