Soop import Mssql Incremental

    I get a error when I am trying to import from mssql with sqoop. I do a incremental import with lastmodified option on a datetime filed.
    I get : Caused by: com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: convert char to datetime error.
    Can I specified to sqoop a datetime format ?

    Here is my command :

    sqoop import –connect ‘jdbc:sqlserver://;databasename=XXX;username=XXX;password=XXX’ –table ‘tablename’ –hbase-table Table –column-family OFE –hbase-row-key CODE_ROW –incremental lastmodified –check-column DATE_COLUMN –last-value

    Thank for your help

    Hello MEJANE Nicolas,
    Change the –incremental to –incremental append. then it will work, there is no such thing in sqoop as incremental.


    Please refer: http://sqoop.apache.org/docs/1.4.2/SqoopUserGuide.html#_incremental_imports

    Which talks about the incremental imports.
