> When calling LOAD DATA INPATH ... OVERWRITE INTO TABLE ... from a Hive user other than
the HDFS file owner, and the HDFS sticky bit is set, then Hive will throw an error exception
message that the file cannot be moved due to permission issues.
> Caused by: Permission denied by sticky
bit setting: user=hive, inode=sasdata-2016-04-20-17-13-43-630-e-00001.dlv.bk
> The permission denied is expected, but the error message does not make sense to users
+ the stack trace displayed is huge. We should display a better error message to users, and
maybe provide with help information about how to fix it.
