I am trying to upload data to a hive table using the sqoop command but the job gets stuck in between and never completes. Job gets stuck at "Connecting to jdbc:hive2:///default;serviceDiscoveryMode=zooKeeper;zooKeeperNamespace=hiveserver2" . I have verified that the data gets uploaded to HDFS directory but doesn't create a hive table. The Sqoop script that I have been using is as follows " sqoop import --connect "jdbc:sqlserver://;database=;username=;password=" --table --hive-import --create-hive-table --hive-table default. --target-dir /user/hadoop/ --split-by UPDATE_DATE --hive-overwrite -m 1" .
