Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMBARI-2067) hive-site.xml cannot be readonly for clients
Date Thu, 02 May 2013 18:28:15 GMT


Sumit Mohanty commented on AMBARI-2067:

Few comments:
* ambari-agent/src/main/puppet/modules/hdp-hive/manifests/params.pp
** what will happen if someone configures the hive conf dir to /etc/hive/conf.server?

Server changes LGTM. Did not review the agent changes.

> We changed the permissions on hive-site.xml from 644 to 660. This was done because the
metastore password is in clear text.
> This results in clients not being able to access the metastore and hive cannot run in
client mode. Recomended aproach is splitting the hive configs differently for client and hive
metastore host.
> The password is required only for the metastore process and the hive client config should
be readable to all.
