Managing Hive Metastore

The Hive Metastore is started automatically by the warden at installation time if the mapr-hivemetastore package is installed. It is sometimes necessary to start or stop the service (for example, after changing the configuration). You can start and stop Hive Metastore in two ways:

  • Using the maprcli node services command - Using this command, you can start Hive Metastore on multiple nodes at one time.
  • Using the MapR Control System
