Managing the Sqoop 1 Client

The Sqoop 1 client allows you to create a Sqoop 1 gateway and deploy the client configuration.

Installing JDBC Drivers

Sqoop 1 does not ship with third-party JDBC drivers; you must download them separately. For information on downloading and saving the drivers, see (CDH 4) Installing JDBC Drivers and (CDH 5) Installing JDBC Drivers. Ensure that you do not save JARs in the CDH parcel directory /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH, because this directory is overwritten when you upgrade CDH.

Adding the Sqoop 1 Client

Minimum Required Role: Full Administrator

The Sqoop 1 client packages are installed by the Installation wizard. However, the client configuration is not deployed. To create a Sqoop 1 gateway and deploy the client configuration:
  1. On the Home > Status tab, click to the right of the cluster name and select Add a Service. A list of service types display. You can add one type of service at a time.
  2. Select the Sqoop 1 Client service and click Continue.
  3. Select the services on which the new service should depend. All services must depend on the same ZooKeeper service. Click Continue.
  4. Customize the assignment of role instances to hosts. The wizard evaluates the hardware configurations of the hosts to determine the best hosts for each role. The wizard assigns all worker roles to the same set of hosts to which the HDFS DataNode role is assigned. You can reassign role instances.

    Click a field below a role to display a dialog box containing a list of hosts. If you click a field containing multiple hosts, you can also select All Hosts to assign the role to all hosts, or Custom to display the hosts dialog box.

    The following shortcuts for specifying hostname patterns are supported:
    • Range of hostnames (without the domain portion)
      Range Definition Matching Hosts
      10.1.1.[1-4] 10.1.1.1, 10.1.1.2, 10.1.1.3, 10.1.1.4
      host[1-3].company.com host1.company.com, host2.company.com, host3.company.com
      host[07-10].company.com host07.company.com, host08.company.com, host09.company.com, host10.company.com
    • IP addresses
    • Rack name

    Click the View By Host button for an overview of the role assignment by hostname ranges.

  5. Click Continue. The client configuration deployment command runs.
  6. Click Continue and click Finish.
