AD  group names with spaces not working with Hive

We have AD group names with spaces in the group name such as "domain users".

MapR access is provided by ACL and users are attached to those required group names in AD.  Eg: "finance_users".

 

But, when Hive validate users, Hive crashes as it cannot validate  Linux group names with spaces such as "domain users".

 

How do you address this?  Is there a safe method to convert all spaces to underscore ( _ ) ?

 

We cannot remove spaces from AD group names as those names are used in many other systems.
