Installing Sqoop2

This topic includes instructions for using package managers to download and install Sqoop2 from the MEP repository.

For instructions on setting up the MEP repository, see Step 10: Install Ecosystem Components Manually.
Sqoop2 includes two packages:
  • The client package, mapr-sqoop2-client (install on each node that will act as a client)
  • The server package, mapr-sqoop2-server (install on at least one node in the cluster)
The Sqoop2 server also acts as a MapReduce client, so each node where you install the mapr-sqoop2-server package must also have Hadoop installed and configured. If you have a lot of client users, you can install multiple servers on multiple nodes, so as not to overload a single server.
Warning: Sqoop2 packages cannot be installed on the same nodes as Sqoop1 packages. However, you can use both versions in the same Hadoop cluster by installing Sqoop1 and Sqoop2 on different nodes.
Execute the following commands as root or using sudo:
  1. On each Sqoop2 server node, install mapr-sqoop2-server:
    On Ubuntu
    apt-get install mapr-sqoop2-server
    On RedHat and CentOS
    yum install mapr-sqoop2-server
    On SUSE
    zypper install mapr-sqoop2-server
  2. On each Sqoop2 client node, install mapr-sqoop2-client:
    On Ubuntu
    apt-get install mapr-sqoop2-client
    On RedHat and CentOS
    yum install mapr-sqoop2-client
    On SUSE
    zypper install mapr-sqoop2-client
  3. Run -R:
    /opt/mapr/server/ -R
  4. Start each Sqoop server node.
    maprcli node services -name sqoop2 -action start -nodes <space delimited list of nodes>
