Subject Re: mixing range and hash partitioning
Date Sat, 25 Feb 2017 04:22:40 GMT
The test doesn't exactly reproduce what I did in my sample program.

I'm able to successfully drop the unbounded partition in both cases
(calling set_range_partition_columns only vs calling
set_range_partition_columns+add_hash_partitions).  However, if I omit the
call to DropRangePartition, then AddRangePartition succeeds in the first
case and fails in the second case.  I expect it to succeed in both cases or
fail in both cases.

I've attached a simple program which demonstrates.
