How-to | Configure an internal metastore#

When no external metastore service is available such as a Hive Metastore or an AWS Glue Data Catalog, you can use the DSS virtual metastore. A DSS virtual metastore is where DSS itself plays the role of a metastore. For more information about enabling this type of metastore service, visit DSS as virtual metastore.

To request the DSS virtual metastore service from the catalog, a DSS user performs the following steps:

  1. From the Administration menu, select Catalog.

  2. Choose the metastore service.
