Re: Permission denied creating external table
Hi Oliver,

Try to set these properties in core-site.xml: Using * will allow everyone
to impersonate Hive and the cluster needs to be restarted.

  <description>Allow the superuser hive to impersonate any members of
the group users. Required only when installing Hive.

where *$HIVE_USER* is the user owning Hive Services. For example, hive.

  <description>Hostname from where superuser hive can connect.
Required only when installing Hive.

Also, Enable the following configuration in Hive-site.xml:


In addition, Please use the directory path only while you are creating the
table and it would be better to have 'hadoop' as the supergroup.

Hope this helps.
