I installed a Cloudera hadoop CDH5 cluster ( 4 mchines ) and started to play with it .
However soon i ran into a weird problem. When i tried to import some data from mysql using sqoop i realized that the mysql drivers weren’t installed .
Installation was done using parcels . So i after reading a lot of documentation i realized that the directory where i was supposed to put the mysql jar is:
I used mysql-connector-java-5.1.30-bin.jar .
If the file is not there … It wont be deployed .
