Why do we have multiple hive-site.xml files?

New Contributor

In our hadoop cluster, each node has 2 hive-site.xml files. One is under /etc/hive/conf/hive-site.xml and the other is under /etc/hive2/conf/hive-site/xml. When I want to change configuration options, which do I put them under? Most of the options appear to be under hive but when we connect using jdbc, the url has hive2. Any information on these will be very helpful.
