Re: Hive queries
Hi Cyril

I believe you are using the derby meta store and then it should be an issue with the hive configs.

Derby is trying to create a metastore at your current dir from where you are starting hive. The tables exported by sqoop would be inside HIVE_HOME and hence you are not able to see the tables from getting on to hive CLI from other locations.

To have a universal metastore db configure a specific dir in javax.jdo.option.ConnectionURL in hive-site.xml . In your conn url configure the db name as "databaseName=/home/hive/metastore_db"

Subject: Re: Hive queries

I do not get any errors.
It is only when I run hive and try to query the tables I imported. Let's
say I want to only get numeric tuples for a given table. I cannot find the
table (show tables; is empty) unless I go in the hive home folder and run
hive again. I would expect the state of hive to be the same everywhere I
call it.
But so far it is not the case.
