I'm only encountering this error when I import from mssql windows server 2003. When I import from MYSQL 5.5 to MYSQL 5.6 it does not have any problem. I'm using sqljdbc4.jar for the sql driver.
I also attached the screen shot of the error.
Please help me getting rid this error without mapping timestamp column to string.
thank you for your fast response @Geoffrey Shelton Okot. I already know that --map-column-hive is used to override the default mapping from SQL type to Hive type. Is there any other way to get rid of that error without using --map-column-hive??
