Change Hive default directory


I have a doubt regarding Hive directory change. I would like to change the default directory to something new that is visible only to me (let’s say under my directory : /user/<my_username>/). So, does changing this affect other students as well since it is a shared cluster?

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Ganesh,
You are free to experiment it. Also, please tell me the result.
