Subject Using s3 as warehouse on emr
Date Fri, 22 Jan 2016 12:52:20 GMT

I'd like to use S3 as the hive warehouse on my emr 4.x cluster.
I've set hive.metastore.warehouse.dir=s3n://testbucket/hive_warehouse and
fs.s3.impl=org.apache.hadoop.fs.s3native.NativeS3FileSystem (not sure if
this is needed) in the hive-site.xml on the master node. Double checked the
"set -v" output, the properties are correct.

When I run a command like "create table test1 (x String);" in Hive CLI, it
is created in the default warehouse dir (/user/hive/warehouse/) instead of

What am I missing here?
