Overview of Apache Hive Installation and Upgrade in CDH


Hive comes along with the base CDH installation and does not need to be installed manually. Use Cloudera Manager to enable or disable the Hive service. If you disable the Hive service, the component always remains present on the cluster. For details on installing CDH with Cloudera Manager, which installs Hive, see Installation Using Cloudera Manager Parcels or Packages.


Use Cloudera Manager to upgrade CDH and all of its components, including Hive. For details, see Upgrading the CDH Cluster.
