Problem :

Currently I am using Hadoop 2.7.1 and apache-hive-1.2.1 versions installed on my ubuntu 14.0.

1. Why below error is occurring ?

2. Do I need to do metastore installation ?

3. When we are typing the hive command on terminal how the xml's internally getting called and what is the flow of the xml's?

4. Do I need to do any other configuration's ?

When I am trying to write the hive command on my ubuntu 14.0 terminal it is throwing the following exception to me :

$ hive

Solution :

If you are just wondering around in just local mode then you can drop metastore DB and reinstate it as follows :

rm -rf metastore_db/

$HIVE_HOME/bin/schematool -initSchema -dbType derby

Problem: Lets assume, yesterday I loaded data for partition_dates : 01-01, 02-01 till 10-01 When I load data today, I see partition_dates as : 01-01, 03-01 till 11-01, meaning 02-01 partition is not available. But hive is not overwriting or deleting this 02-01 partition. How can I achieve this functionality dynamically?
