Upgrade Sqoop

  1. Upload new Sqoop tarballs to HDFS, if you have not already done so in the prior Hive and WebHCat step. Execute these commands on the host with the Sqoop client:

    su -l <HDFS_USER> -c "hdfs dfs -mkdir -p /hdp/apps/2.3.x.y-z/sqoop/"
    su -l <HDFS_USER> -c "hdfs dfs -put /usr/hdp/current/sqoop-client/sqoop.tar.gz /hdp/apps/2.3.x.y-z/sqoop/"
    su -l <HDFS_USER> -c "hdfs dfs -chmod -R 555 /hdp/apps/2.3.x.y-z/sqoop"
    su -l <HDFS_USER> -c "hdfs dfs -chmod -R 444 /hdp/apps/2.3.x.y-z/sqoop/sqoop.tar.gz"
    su -l <HDFS_USER> -c "hdfs dfs -chown -R <HDFS_USER>:<HADOOP_GROUP> /hdp"    

    where <HDFS_USER> is the HDFS Service user. For example, hdfs.

  2. Save the old Sqoop configuration and add symlink from /etc/sqoop/conf:

    mv /etc/sqoop/conf /etc/sqoop/conf.saved

    ln -s /usr/hdp/current/sqoop-client/conf /etc/sqoop/conf

    ls -la /etc/sqoop
