Hi All ,
The ownership of hive table is controlled by the ownership of its hdfs dir.
The table dir on hdfs ownership can be changed by running the following
hadoop fs -chown $user:$grp -R $table_dir
$table_dir: can be obtained by running in hive shell .
> desc extended 'table_name' ;
Hope this help.
