Sqoop job through oozie

  • #56348
    Colman Madden

    I have created a sqoop job called TeamMemsImportJob which basically pulls data from sql server into hive.
    I can execute the sqoop job through the unix command line by running the following command:

    sqoop job –exec TeamMemsImportJob

    If I create an oozie job with the actual scoop import command in it, it runs through fine.
    However if I create the oozie job and run the sqoop job through it, I get the following error:

    oozie job -config -run

    >>> Invoking Sqoop command line now >>>

    4273 [main] WARN org.apache.sqoop.tool.SqoopTool – $SQOOP_CONF_DIR has not been set in the environment. Cannot check for additional configuration.
    4329 [main] INFO org.apache.sqoop.Sqoop – Running Sqoop version:

    5172 [main] ERROR org.apache.sqoop.tool.JobTool – I/O error performing job operation: Cannot restore missing job TeamMemsImportJob
    at org.apache.sqoop.tool.JobTool.execJob(

    it looks as if it cannot find the job. However I can see the job as below

    [root@sandbox ~]# sqoop job –list
    Warning: /usr/lib/sqoop/../accumulo does not exist! Accumulo imports will fail.
    Please set $ACCUMULO_HOME to the root of your Accumulo installation.

    Can someone please help me out with this?

    I have executed sqoop import tables from sql server to hdfs and vice versa. How I can schedule the same with oozie? Do I get step by step procedure anywhere?

    Diwakar Dhanuskodi

    Did you try out the sqoop sample code availabe in oozie example directories.

    Aparna Nayak

    Hello Diwakar,
    Thank you for your response. I tried that. Beginning I did not get any examples. Later I found.


    The metastore for sqoop is hsqldb. Your hsqldb is started locally where sqoop runs. You have to start it remotley so that it is accessible across the cluster. Sqoop-sit.xml needs changes.
