    I get error when i try invoke command: sqoop job –meta-connect jdbc:hsqldb:hsql://localhost:16000/sqoop –list

    6041 [main] ERROR org.apache.sqoop.tool.JobTool – I/O error performing job operation: Exception creating SQL connection
    at org.apache.sqoop.metastore.hsqldb.HsqldbJobStorage.init(
    Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: socket creation error
    at org.hsqldb.jdbc.Util.sqlException(Unknown Source)
    at org.hsqldb.jdbc.jdbcConnection.<init>(Unknown Source)

    If i invoke command: sqoop metastore i get info that server started on port 16000

    My sqoop-site.xml
    <description>The connect string to use when connecting to a
    job-management metastore. If unspecified, uses ~/.sqoop/.
    You can specify a different path here.
    <description>Path to the shared metastore database files.
    If this is not set, it will be placed in ~/.sqoop/.

    <description>Port that this metastore should listen on.

    If i comment above settings as its default and try invoke command: sqoop job –list it works
    Where is the problem with –meta-connect ?

    Try running the command without meta connect option. Verify it is listing jobs. If it runs success, then your metastore wasn’t configured properly.
