Hi all,

I am following the directions from

I uploaded a tab separated file into a hive table, and it went fine.
When I try to copy it into another table of sequencefile type, it
creates a task called something similar to:

insert overwrite table foo... foo_tmp(1/2)

It finished that job, but the new table seems to be empty, what am I
doing wrong here? Also, the 1/2 suggests me there should be a second
task, could that be the problem? I did that yesterday night and
disconnected accidentally. If that is the case, is there a command
that can do step 1 and 2 together?
