Affects Version/s: 1.4.5
Fix Version/s: None
Gwen and I were working on some code for Data Warehousing that uses sqoop and we found something interesting.
At one place:
Sqoop1 claims warehouse-dir and target-dir are incompatible:
(We should mention this in the docs btw)
But, then if we only put the warehouse-dir (and don't specify the target dir), it complains that the target-dir needs to be specified. See here:
And, fyi, here is the query we ran:
If we specify just the target-dir, we get a warning about writing to target-dir and the data goes to default warehouse directory (/usr/hive...), which is pretty unexpected:
15/03/03 14:47:22 WARN util.AppendUtils: Cannot append files to target dir; no such directory: _sqoop/03144643000000600_30456_mgrover-haa2-4.vpc.cloudera.com_f8bf8ac4
obviously the directory in the warning is not the target dir we specified... this looks like something internal to the Kite/Parquet code.
