Hi Chris,

Seems like you are confused about the JDBC driver and Sqoop2 Connector. They are totally different things. Actually, when you download any JDBC driver, it helps the generic connector to use that JDBC driver to be able to manipulate the specific database. Does this explains why only generic connector is shown up?

Hi all!


I’ve downloaded the MS and MySQL JDBC drivers and copied them to /var/lib/sqoop2 but when I run the show connectors command in the interactive shell, it only shows the generic driver.


I have installed the Cloudera distribution using the Manager. Should I be copying the files to a different directory? What am I missing.


Any and all help greatly appreciated!
