Installing Sqoop 2

Sqoop 2 is distributed as two separate packages: a client package (sqoop2-client) and a server package (sqoop2-server). Install the server package on one node in the cluster; because the Sqoop 2 server acts as a MapReduce client this node must have Hadoop installed and configured.

Install the client package on each node that will act as a client. A Sqoop 2 client will always connect to the Sqoop 2 server to perform any actions, so Hadoop does not need to be installed on the client nodes.

Depending on what you are planning to install, choose the appropriate package and install it using your preferred package manager application.

  Note: The Sqoop 2 packages can't be installed on the same machines as Sqoop1 packages. However you can use both versions in the same Hadoop cluster by installing Sqoop1 and Sqoop 2 on different nodes.

To install the Sqoop 2 server package on a RHEL-compatible system:

  Note: Install Cloudera Repository

Before using the instructions on this page to install or upgrade, install the Cloudera yum, zypper/YaST or apt repository, and install or upgrade CDH 5 and make sure it is functioning correctly. For instructions, see Installing the Latest CDH 5 Release and Upgrading Unmanaged CDH Using the Command Line.

$ sudo yum install sqoop2-server

To install the Sqoop 2 client package on a RHEL-compatible system:

$ sudo yum install sqoop2-client

To install the Sqoop 2 server package on a SLES system:

$ sudo zypper install sqoop2-server

To install the Sqoop 2 client package on a SLES system:

$ sudo zypper install sqoop2-client

To install the Sqoop 2 server package on an Ubuntu or Debian system:

$ sudo apt-get install sqoop2-server

To install the Sqoop 2 client package on an Ubuntu or Debian system:

$ sudo apt-get install sqoop2-client
  Note:

Installing the sqoop2-server package creates a sqoop-server service configured to start Sqoop 2 at system startup time.

You are now ready to configure Sqoop 2. See the next section.
