User creation on edge node

Question asked by shanu on Oct 20, 2013
Hi Team,

While adding a new user to the cluster to run mapreduce programs, I am facing issues. I have followed the following steps:
1) Create the user with a particular uid and gid.
2) Create this user on all the cluster nodes with theabove uid and gid
3) For mapreduce jobs, give proper permission to this user on a particular volume
4)For hive, make sure the warehouse and scratch directory point to correct location

After following the above steps, I find that the hive queries fails with stage directory issue:

Please let me know if I am missing any steps.
