Hi Team,

As I can find in case of hive, there is no recommendation about setting up the property :
hive.metastore.warehouse.dir in hive-site.xml.  Is it normal to not to set in mapR distributions ?
if yes why ? if no, shall we go ahead and create a new volume to set it ?

Also some of the renames on larger tables are failing with following error Error
return code 1, DDLtask .

The table being renamed to another name has partitions and is around 1.7 TB in size.
