Simple way to configuring mysql or Postgresql RDBMS as Hive metastore

simple way to configuring mysql or Postgresql RDBMS as Hive metastore

Hive will store the metadata information (i.e like RDBMS will stores the table
and column information) out of HDFS and it will process the data available in HDFS.

By default Hive store its metastore into Derby a lightweight database.
which will serve single instance at a time. If you try to start mutltiple instance of Hive, you will get error like
"Another instance of Derby may have already booted the database".

In this will see how we can configure other RDBMS (MySQL & PostgreSQL) as Hive metastore.

Create / rename hive-default.xml.template TO hive-site.xml under $HIVE_HOME/conf
hadoop@solai# vim.tiny $HIVE_HOME/conf/hive-default.xml

change the value of the following property
















download and plcae the "mysql-connector-java-5.x.xx-bin.jar" to the $HIVE_HOME/lib
hadoop@solai# mv /home/hadoop/Downloads/mysql-connector-java-5.1.31.tar.gz $HIVE_HOME/lib
In Mysql create database "hivedb" and load the hive schema to the database "hivedb"
mysql> create database hivedb;
mysql> use hivedb;

## following will create hive schema in mysql database.
mysql> SOURCE $HIVE_HOME/scripts/metastore/upgrade/mysql/hive-schema-0.12.0.mysql.sql

its important to restrict user to alter / delete hivedb.
mysql> CREATE USER 'mysqlroot'@'hivedb' IDENTIFIED BY 'hive@123';

mysql> REVOKE ALL PRIVILEGES, GRANT OPTION FROM 'mysqlroot'@'hivedb';

mysql> GRANT SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE,LOCK TABLES,EXECUTE ON hivedb.* TO 'mysqlroot'@'localhost';


mysql> quit;
Enter Hive CLI, for create table

hive> create table testHiveMysql(uname string, uplace string);
enter into mysql to check the schema information created in hive environment. following lines will return the table and column information.
mysql> select * from TBLS;
mysql> select * from COLUMNS_V2;
mysql> show tables;
show tables, will return all the tables pertaining to the Hive schema
