Re: Renaming partition columnname only (locations remain unchanged)
currently hive partitions on hdfs stored as col1=val1/col2=val2

looking at this if you change the column name in the metadata, I am not
sure you will be able to locate the data with old column name. other way
would be alter table and and run hdfs move to reflect your new column name
in the partition directories on hdfs.

It looks much simpler to just create new table and dump the old one via
hive though
