HMS Overview

ODAS uses a Hive Metastore (HMS) to store the catalog information that contains information such as table registrations, partitions and more. The HMS data is stored on the configured database server. By default, ODAS will create everything necessary by itself on the database server.

However, if you already have a pre-existing HMS stored on an existing database server, you can configure ODAS to connect to an existing HMS.
