Unity Catalog Metastore Details

hi,

I would like to seek response to my following questions regarding Unity Catalog Metastore's path.

While configuring metastore, designating a metastore storage account (in case of Azure, it's ADLS Gen2) seems to be an optional thing. In case I configured a storage container for metastore, will it store all its metadata (table name, schema, permissions etc) into the storage container or it stores all those metadata details into a metastore database inside Databricks control plane?

The storage container you configure for the metastore will contain the files of managed tables and volumes. The metadata is stored in a database of the Databricks control plane.
