Hi, how can I start a Sqoop2 server on my Sandbox and use the Sqoop Client API to import data into HDFS?

hi, sqoop2 isn't supported on HDP, you should use sqoop 1.4 bundled.

Hi Laurent,

thanks for your answer. Is id advisable to use Sqoop Client with a Java action? Or should one stick to the Sqoop-Action. The idea is to have a better error handling within the Java-Action.

Ken, you can use the Java action, unfrtunately the sqoop1.x API is very limitated (Sqoop.runTool() and that's quite all). But in my experience this works perfectly.
