Renaming Tables

To harden the system, Hive data can be stored in HDFS encryption zones. RENAME has been changed to prevent moving a table outside the same encryption zone or into a no-encryption zone.

Before Upgrade to CDP

In CDH and HDP, renaming a managed table moves its HDFS location.

After Upgrade to CDP

Renaming a managed table moves its location only if the table is created without a LOCATION clause and is under its database directory.
