Sqoop import failed after initial import

  • #31577

    I’ve imported a table from SQL Server 2008 R2 to Hive using SQOOP. It worked but when I dropped the table in Hive and reimport I’m getting following error

    Looks like the error is :
    Output directory MPTest already exists

    Can you please try specifying new directory?

    Hope this helps,



    Thanks. I deleted the directory and it is working fine. I’m trying to add a xml mapper in Groovy to Transform XML in hive Select. I’m getting an error

    Can you please let me know how to use Groovy script in Hive?

    Hi Sundar,

    Good to know that your issue is resolved. Can you please open new thread for Groovy issue?
