Subject [jira] [Created] (AMBARI-2067) hive-site.xml cannot be readonly for clients
Date Wed, 01 May 2013 22:48:15 GMT

---------------------------------------

             Summary: hive-site.xml cannot be readonly for clients
                 Key: AMBARI-2067
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-2067
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: agent, controller
    Affects Versions: 1.3.0
            Reporter: Siddharth Wagle
            Assignee: Siddharth Wagle
             Fix For: 1.3.0


We changed the permissions on hive-site.xml from 644 to 660. This was done because the metastore
password is in clear text.
This results in clients not being able to access the metastore and hive cannot run in client
mode. Recomended aproach is splitting the hive configs differently for client and hive metastore
host.

The password is required only for the metastore process and the hive client config should
be readable to all.
