Installing the Teradata Connector

You can install the connector for Teradata using Cloudera Manager if you have a CDH 6 or CDP 7 cluster.

Installation with Cloudera Manager


In the past, if you manually installed a Teradata connector, you must remove it before installing the Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata as follows:
  1. Go to /var/lib/sqoop and search for "tera".
  2. Delete the matching files.
  3. Delete the /usr/lib/sqoop/conf directory.

Step 1: Adding the Sqoop Client Gateway

The Sqoop1 Client Gateway sets up and manages the connector configuration for the hosts where you execute Sqoop1 commands. If you do not already have the Sqoop1 Client Gateway deployed in your cluster, deploy it before proceeding.

Step 2: Download, Distribute, and Activate the Sqoop Parcels

Parcels for Sqoop connectors are prefixed by SQOOP_, followed by the name of the connector.

Follow the instructions in Managing Parcels to download, distribute, and activate Sqoop parcels. After activating the parcels, you must redeploy the Sqoop client configuration.

If you have a CDP cluster, you can install the connector as a parcel using Cloudera Manager.

To install the Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata as a parcel:
  1. Add one of the parcel links based on the Connector Compatibility Matrix.

  2. Download the Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata, distribute, and activate it.
