Subject RE: How to specify --target-dir for sqoop incremental imports into hive
Date Mon, 09 Jun 2014 16:27:34 GMT
Hi Jarcec,

I am trying to import incremental data from Oracle to hive but not HDFS. Though I have not
specified --hive-import parameter in below command, I am getting the same issue even when
I use it.
The reason I provided --target-dir is that currently the user with which I am running sqoop
command is a sudo user and it has no permissions to write or create anything in its home directory(which
sqoop uses as default directory to import data).
So, please let me know how does it work in case of loading incremental data into hive.
Do we need to provide --target-dir? If yes, what value it should be? Hive warehouse location?

Did you actually tried to let Sqoop finish it's job?

I believe that you are observing valid behaviour - MapReduce won't allow you to import data
into existing directory and hence Sqoop will firstly import data into temporal directory and
then move them to final destination specified with --target-dir argument.
