Creating a Hive Cluster job using Amazon EMR CLI

Following from my previous post on Installing the Amazon EMR Command Line Interface for Windows, I will look at how to create an Elastic MapReduce job (Hive Cluster) from the CLI. This includes creation of Instances i.e a Master Instance and Slave Instances using an Interactive Hive Session. Step 1: without specifying the number of instances to create – Run the following command from the Amazon EMR CLI directory: –create –alive –hive-interactive –name “Test_Job Flow” –instance-type m1.
