Re: how to modify or use sqoop to write to a different destination
thanks. importing into HDFS is fine for now. but i have another question

let's say i have 3 servers.

W: web server
H: hadoop server
D: database server

what i want to do is use sqoop on W to import data from D to H.
unfortunately, H is locked down (no new software besides hadoop may be
installed on it for now). is this scenario possible with sqoop? from
reading the documentation, it seems sqoop has to be installed on H and run
from H, but H is a cluster of restricted modifications.

please note that i am experimenting with sqoop 1.4.3.
