Oozie Sqoop job - cannot restore job

avatar
Expert Contributor

On HDP 2.3.4, using Oozie 4.2.0 and Sqoop 1.4.2, I'm trying to create a coordinator app that will execute sqoop jobs on a daily basis. I need the sqoop action to execute jobs because these are incremental imports.

I've configured `sqoop-site.xml` and started the `sqoop-metastore` and I'm able to create, list, and delete jobs via the command line but the workflow encounters the error: Cannot restore job: streamsummary_incremental

stderr

Sqoop command arguments :
             job
             --exec
             streamsummary_incremental

Additional info:

  • We're only running a single-node cluster.
  • Only Sqoop Client is installed.

I'm thinking maybe Oozie isn't able to connect to the metastore because we don't have sqoop server? Could anyone confirm this? If not that, could I have missed anything else?

Thanks!

@Luis Antonio Torres

please issue sqoop job --list from this node and from the node where oozie server runs.

@Artem Ervits our HDP is running on a single-node configuration, and I am able to list the sqoop jobs from this node

excellent, you beat me by 5min, I was about to point you to the doc for that. I should've looked at your workflow more carefully. @Luis Antonio Torres

Thanks for all of your help so far, Artem. I do have a question regarding the metastore though - hopefully you could shed some light on this for me. So far, I've only been able to start the metastore via command-line and it runs in foreground. This is of course unacceptable in a fully automated process. I'm assuming there's a way to run this as a service instead, and for that I would need sqoop server?

unfortunately I don't know of any built-in solution to run it as a service at least in 1.x line. What I have been doing was putting sqoop metastore service in background. YOu'd do that by issuing your command "sqoop metastore &" you can also run screen and run sqoop metastore in screen session and detach from it. Of course you have no idea if it goes down until jobs start failing. There was a promise to have metastore running in a relational database but I haven't heard anything yet. @Luis Antonio Torres

I find that odd and such a shame. It seems like a metastore service is something that would be an important requirement in order to run incremental imports as jobs and then called from a coordinator app. I did see this blog describing how to manually set-up mysql to work as the metastore, though I never tried it myself. I wonder if this would be preferable to running `sqoop metastore &`?

try it out and blog about it here. I'm sure people will find it valuable. The other thing I just thought of is you can write a script that will constantly ping the metastore and send email if it's down. I've done that to check for firewall status. I feel your pain and I was in the same boat. You can look at Attunity Replicate or Golden Gate for CDC solution and not rely on sqoop incremental jobs. @Luis Antonio Torres

@Luis Antonio Torres: @Artem ErvitsThat sounds like what would fix it for me. But I do have one more question, how do I pass username and password through <arg> for the metaconnect? I do have a password set and it does not allow to pass --username and --password like we usually do. Alternatively, I tried connectURL/sqoop?user=sqoop&password=sqoop, which actually works through command line but not when passed through oozie.
