CDH6 Rollback to CDH5


I'm reading through the rollback document for reverting to CDH 5 from CDH6.

One part that is not clear to me is the following under limitations:

  • Sqoop 1 – Because of the changes introduced in Sqoop metastore logic, the metastore database that is created by the CDH 6.x version of Sqoop cannot be used by earlier versions.

    Does that mean if you are using sqoop 1 in CDH 5 there is no way to rollback after upgrade to CDH6?

Re: CDH6 Rollback to CDH5

As far as I know the sqoop1 in CDH5 does not use any metastore database, so you dont have to worry about it.
