Hey guys,

 

I installed CDH 5.0.2 using cloudera manager which provides Hive 0.12 version. How do I upgrade Hive to 0.13 ?. I am new to all of these, pardon me if I posted it in the wrong forum.

 

Thanks,

Balu

Hi Balu,

 

CDH 5.0.x does not ship with Hive 0.13 entirely; however, it does contain more than 300 of its patches:

Thanks for the quick reply. So I downloaded the latest hive (0.13), replaced the conf files with the old ones (0.12), and changed the PATH variable accordingly. Will this cause any issues ?.

It may or may not work, but it won't be supported at this time, unfortunately.
