Hi. I want to create a hive database in HDFS. But when I use the Hive command to create a database, it is getting created in the default path. How can I change this to store the database in HDFS?

You will have to exclusively mention the HDFS path while creating the database to store it in HDFS. For that, you have to use the LOCATION keyword. For example:

CREATE DATABASE employee LOCATION <hdfs_path>;
