> Couple of scenarios for Hive2 to Hive3(strict managed tables enabled) replication where
managed table is converted to external at source. 
> *Scenario-1: (ACID/MM table converted to external at target)*
> 1. Create non-ACID ORC format table.
> 2. Insert some rows
> 3. Replicate this create event which creates ACID table at target (due to migration rule).
Each insert event adds transactional metadata in HMS corresponding to the current table.
> 4. Convert table to external table using ALTER command at source.
> *Scenario-2: (External table at target changes table location)*
> 1. Create non-ACID avro format table.
> 2. Insert some rows
> 3. Replicate this create event which creates external table at target (due to migration
rule). The data path is chosen under default external warehouse directory.
> 4. Convert table to external table using ALTER command at source.
> It is unable to convert an ACID table to external table at target. Also, it is hard to
detect what would be the table type at target when perform this ALTER table operation at source.
> So, it is decided to disable conversion of managed table at source (Hive2) to EXTERNAL
or vice-versa if the DB is enabled for replication and strict managed is disabled.
