that advice is way over complicating something that is very easy. instead,
please take this approach.
1. run the ddl to create the table on the new cluster
2. distcp the hdfs data into the appropriate hdfs directory.
3. run "msck repair table <table>" in hive to discover the partitions and
populate the metastore accordingly.
