  1. Download the Apache Ambari repository using the instructions provided in " Download the Ambari Repository" in the Automated Install with Ambari guide.


    Do not start the Ambari server until you have configured the relevant templates as outlined in the following steps.

  2. Edit the <master-install-machine-for-Hive-Metastore>/etc/hive/conf.server/hive-site.xml configuration file to add the following properties:

       <name> hive.metastore.uris </name>
       <value> thrift://$Hive_Metastore_Server_Host_Machine_FQDN </value>
       <description> URI for client to contact metastore server </description>
    • Configure Hive cluster delegation token storage class.
