Constant Retrying: client unable to connect

  • #12272

    I’m attempting a simple proof of concept:
    sqoop import –connect ‘jdbc:sqlserver://;username=hadoop;password=hadoop1!;database=LCINAVREP’ –table ‘LCI$Customer’ –hive-import

    However, upon executing I get the following error message until it times out:
    INFO ipc.Client: Retrying connect to server: Horton/ Already tried 16 time(s); retry policy is RetryUpToMaximumCountWithFixedSleep(maxRetries=50, sleepTime=1 SECONDS)

    Any ideas?

    Please disregard, I had a bunk installation. I can now see all service are running after completely a fresh installation.
