    I’ve been able to get Scoop connected to my local SQL Server install to pull data into the Sandbox when I’m using the default SQL schema “dbo”. However I cannot figure out a way to point to non-default schemas. I see in the Sqoop documentation that version 1.4.4 is supposed to be able to connect to MSSQL non-default schemas using the –schema argument but when I try and add that I get the following error: “unrecognized argument schema”. Anyone have any thoughts? I messed around with it all weekend with no luck.

    Figured this out. The MS SQL connector extra arguments need to occur at the end of Sqoop command and after an empty —
    So where I was doing
    sqoop import –connect <connectionString> –table <tableName> –schema <schemaName>
    It needed to be
    sqoop import –connect <connectionString> –table <tableName> — –schema <schemaName>
