Starting the Sqoop2 Command Line Client

The Sqoop install directory (<SQOOP_INSTALL_DIR>) is of the form /opt/mapr/sqoop/sqoop-<version_number>.
  • To start the sqoop2 command line client without MapR-SASL authentication, enter:
    $ cd <SQOOP_INSTALL_DIR>
    $ ./bin/sqoop.sh client

    When Sqoop2 does not use MapR-SASL, any user that has access to run jobs on the cluster can start the Sqoop2 client.

  • To start the Sqoop2 command line client with MapR-SASL authentication, enter:
    $ cd <SQOOP_INSTALL_DIR>
    $ ./bin/sqoop.sh client --custom

    When Sqoop2 uses MapR-SASL, any user with a MapR ticket can start the Sqoop2 client.
