Installing the Sqoop 1 RPM or Debian Packages

Installing the Sqoop 1 RPM or Debian packages is more convenient than installing the Sqoop 1 tarball because the packages:

  • Handle dependencies
  • Provide for easy upgrades
  • Automatically install resources to conventional locations

The Sqoop 1 packages consist of:

  • sqoop — Complete Sqoop 1 distribution
  • sqoop-metastore — For installation of the Sqoop 1 metastore only
  Important:

If you have not already done so, install Cloudera's yum, zypper/YaST or apt repository before using the following commands to install Sqoop 1. For instructions, see CDH 5 Installation.

To install Sqoop 1 on a Red Hat system:

$ sudo yum install sqoop

To install Sqoop 1 on an Ubuntu or other Debian system:

$ sudo apt-get install sqoop

To install Sqoop 1 on a SLES system:

$ sudo zypper install sqoop

If you have already configured CDH on your system, there is no further configuration necessary for Sqoop 1. You can start using Sqoop 1 by using commands such as:

$ sqoop help
$ sqoop version
$ sqoop import
