Re: Drop table skiptrash?
Well in hive you can set hadoop variables so you can use the set command to
explicitly disable trash on the client

set x=y

If that does not work it is possible to run dfs commands from hive. Just do
your normal hadoop dfs command without specifying hadoop.

hive > dfs -rmr /user/hive/warehouse
