Hive external creation error



I did imported data to hdfs, then I am trying to create hive external table in that location and facing the following error

Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.DDLTask. MetaException( Permission denied: user=kinandu16, access=WRITE, inode="/":hdfs:hdfs:drwxrwxr-x


Return code 1 in Hive though this is generic but indicates something wrong in env., Its appears from your there is no proper permission, would request you to give write permission and try it once, it will be hopefully resolved.
