Connecting to Teradata using Sqoop

  • #47840
    Upen Patel


    I am trying to connect to Teradata db from the sandbox using sqoop. I have downloaded the Teradata connector from the Teradata website – teradata-connector-1.0.9.jar and put it in the /usr/lib/sqoop/lib

    Do I need a Teradata JDBC driver and if so where would I get it?

    Also, when I run the following I am getting an error, please help:
    sqoop list-databases –connect “jdbc:Teradata://;” –username xxxxx –password xxxxx

    14/01/30 03:18:30 ERROR tool.BaseSqoopTool: Got error creating database manager: No manager for connect string: jdbc:Teradata://;

    Hi Upen,

    You need to specify the connection manager for Teradata.
    Please look at 6.3 here:

    It appears I don’t have the Hortonworks connector for Teradata. I am trying to download it from the Certified Downloads section of your website but the link for HDP 1.3.0 download for the connector seems to be broken.

    Please help
