> The basic suggestion is to avoid having files/directories owned by root wherever possible.
So for /etc/hadoop/conf files should either be owned by hdfs:hadoop, or mapred:hadoop. For
/etc/hive/conf files should only be owned by hive:hadoop, and so on. Think of the case where
you only have access to the accounts that got created, and you need to do as much as possible
without requesting root access.
