Subject Re: Error in importing Postgresql Data type inet in Sqoop
Date Tue, 06 May 2014 14:42:52 GMT
Hi Savitha,
I would strongly recommend to drop the parameter --driver. In almost all cases it's usage
is incorrect - check out blog post at [1] for more details.

I believe that Sqoop do not supports inet type and hence you have to help Sqoop overcome this.
One option is to use --map-column-java and try to cast it to String or something. Another
option would be use --query argument and convert the type inside the query. Sadly neither
of those options will work with import-all-tables option. You can however import all tables
except of those with this type using import-all-tables (hint you can exclude those tables
with --exclude-tables) and import the rest one by one.
