Subject Re: [sqoop-user] Import from mysql table with bit fields
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2011 17:44:39 GMT
[Moving the conversation to Apache mailing list:


Using CDH3U1 version of Hive and the latest sources from Sqoop trunk,
I was able to successfully import a table from MySQL containing a bit
field into Hive. I did this using defaults and only specifying the
--hive-import option.

One thing you can look at to troubleshoot this further is the hive.log
file that gets generated under /tmp/${user}/ directory. This file
should identify if there are any exceptions during the load. You can
also look at the directory by the name of the table under
/user/hive/warehouse on HDFS to see the contents of the imported data.
