Re: Sqoop2 metastore configuration error

Could you let me know the CDH version you are using . 

because it is forcing you to upgrade sqoop 2 version . ?

Re: Sqoop2 metastore configuration error

This problem was caused because the Sqoop tables hadn't been created in PostgreSQL. To solve this problem, please go to CM > Sqoop 2 service, click on Actions button and then choose "Create Sqoop Database". After that, please try to start Sqoop2 service again.
