Re: Exercise 1 Sqoop import fails

Champion

1 . Type show tables in Hive and note down the tables .

 

2 . check under user/hive/warehuse/ using Hue -> File Browser or command line

that Customer folder or categories folders are already being populated .

if so  Remove it using HUE->File browser-Delete or 

 

Drop table command from Hive.

 

Then re run the script and please let me know  . 

 

Or 

 

Simply change the last line of the script 

 

sqoop import-all-tables \
 -m 1 \
 --connect jdbc:mysql://quickstart:3306/retail_db \
 --username=retail_dba \ --password=cloudera \
