    Hi Rja,

    Please refer to Quest Data Connector for Oracle and Hadoop available at

    Also you would need to have oracle driver jar file in the /usr/log/sqoop/lib location to sqoop import to work.

    I have oracle jdbc jar file in my local drive. Not able to copy to /usr/log/sqoop/lib folder in Horton works. Any help is appreciated.



    I wanted to see if you have followed the document to install the ‘Quest Data Connector for Oracle and Hadoop’ .

    What is the name of the jdbc jar file that you are trying to put under /usr/lib/sqoop/lib directory?

    My bad on the last comment where I had misspelled lib as log.
