Sqoop list-databases requires --connection-manager

Contributor

I'm using Hortonworks Sandbox HDP 2.4 and I can't use the `list-databases` tool, although `import` is working.

sqoop list-databases --connect jdbc:mysql://<ip>:<port>/ --driver com.mysql.jdbc.Driver --username=myusername -P

This the result that I get

    16/08/11 07:44:47 WARN sqoop.ConnFactory: Parameter --driver is set to an explicit driver however appropriate connection manager is not being set (via --connection-manager). Sqoop is going to fall back to org.apache.sqoop.manager.GenericJdbcManager. Please specify explicitly which connection manager should be used next time.
    16/08/11 07:44:47 INFO manager.SqlManager: Using default fetchSize of 1000
    16/08/11 07:44:47 ERROR manager.SqlManager: Generic SqlManager.listDatabases() not implemented.
    Could not retrieve database list from server
    16/08/11 07:44:47 ERROR tool.ListDatabasesTool: manager.listDatabases() returned null 

The response says that I need to set the `--connection-manager` parameter, which I do not know. If I will take out the --driver argument, I get exception:

16/08/11 07:48:12 ERROR manager.CatalogQueryManager: Failed to list databases

    The last packet sent successfully to the server was 0 milliseconds ago. The driver has not received any packets from the server.

Re: Sqoop list-databases requires --connection-manager

What worked for me is this:

$ sqoop list-databases 
	--connect jdbc:mysql://<ip>:<port>/ 
	--connection-manager org.apache.sqoop.manager.MySQLManager
	--username=myusername -P

Same thing goes for list-tables tool

$ sqoop list-tables 
	--connect jdbc:mysql://<ip>:<port>/mydb
	--connection-manager org.apache.sqoop.manager.MySQLManager
	--username=myusername -P

I removed the --driver flag.

Can you try something like below?
