Subject Copying a Hive metastore
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2011 21:05:32 GMT

Hive metastore? The second metastore contains existing metadata that needs to be preserved.
Both metastores are in MySQL, not fronted by any Hive metastore server.

that is true because I know zilch about that API - I don't even know where the API documentation
