Setting up users in Hive?

Long story short... re-installed MapR 5.2.

Since its been a while since I've done an install. I figure I missed something.


The issue is that when I try to start hive a hive shell I get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: File /user/msegel/tmp/hive does not exist


Yet I created the directory structure /user/msegel/tmp/hive owned by msegel similar to the directory owned by mapr.


The other issue is that I can't seem to find any user that has ADMIN rights to hive ... (there isn't a hive user.)


And of course... documentation is hard to find.


Any suggestions?


I can create databases and tables as user mapr, however I need to do this as msegel (which I have set up w mapr admin privileges on the cluster. )
