MySQL Databases and tables in the lab

Here is the information about mysql database

Username: retail_dba
Password; itversity

Available databases
retail_db - read only

Here is the syntax to connect from mysql -u retail_dba -h -p
It will prompt you for the password.

Feel free to create tables and insert data to explore sqoop import and export. If there are any issues, please respond to this topic.

I am trying to create table in retail_db using ID retail_dba however it is giving me access error.

mysql> create table order_item_export as select * from order_item where 1 = 2;

ERROR 1142 (42000): INSERT, CREATE command denied to user ‘retail_dba’@‘’ for table ‘order_item_export’.

Can you please help me on this.

  1. How to check access level
  2. How we can create users
  3. How we can modify access level of user.

Thank you,

@Raghuvirsinha_Jadeja - Please use the database "retail_export " to create the tables and import the data.

“retail_db” database we are using for import purpose, which will have only read access.

There are 3 databases - retail_db for read only purpose, retail_import to create your own tables and import data using sqoop import, retail_export to export data using sqoop export.

I was trying to do sqoop export by exporting my hive table to mysql.In order to do so , I created a table called retail_export.cat_sujith and ran the below sqoop command. However it fails because the username and password for this belongs to retail_dba and does not seem to be able to connect to sqoop_export.

The command fails with the error Table ‘retail_db.retail_export.cat_sujith’ doesn’t exist

sqoop export --connect “jdbc:mysql://” --username=retail_dba --password=itversity --table retail_export.cat_sujith --export-dir=/apps/hive/warehouse/sujith_hive_import.db/categories -m 2 --batch

Subsequently i removed the database name retail_export from the sqoop command and it failed with the error Table ‘retail_db.cat_sujith’ doesn’t exist.

mysql> select * from retail_export.cat_sujith;
Empty set (0.00 sec)

As you can see above ,the table retail_export.cat_sujith does exist , show I be using a different username password to be able to connect to the retail_export.cat_sujith and export the data

Please advice as to how to get the sqoop export to recognize the schema and table

JDBC url is incorrect. It should be retail_export not retail_db.

Hi Team,

I tried connecting to mysql but it throws me an error, please help me on this one.

ERROR 2005 (HY000): Unknown MySQL server host ‘’ (0)

ok got it only mysql -u retail_dba -h -p worked fine


Not able to login mySql using retail_export and with password itversity or YES
mysql -u retail_export -h -p
Enter password:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ‘retail_export’@‘’ (using password: YES)

Any one looking at this issue, 2+ hours past…

@deepak_kotla - You have to use retail_dba as user. Refer earlier in the same post.

After login
show databases;
use retail_export;

Not able to export the data from HDFS to mySQL table
below is the command i have used…
sqoop export
–connect jdbc:mysql://
–username retail_dba
–password itversity
–table youtube_mostviewed
–export-dir /user/deepak_kotla/op11
-m 4

========== getting below error ===========

Any update on this issue, it is almost 3+ Hours.


@gnanaprakasam - Can you try adding --input-fields-terminated-by ‘\001’ / check the table what delimited used during import.

sqoop export
–connect jdbc:mysql://
–username retail_dba
–password itversity
–staging-table youtube_mostviewed_stg
–table youtube_mostviewed
–export-dir /user/deepak_kotla/op11/part-r-00000
–fields-terminated-by ‘\001’
-m 4

still same error…
I’m trying to export the data from HDFS to mySQL table as the command says…

Please reply at the earliest… why this error is coming…

@deepak_kotla - After previewing your data, it’s “tab” delimited file

hadoop fs -cat /user/deepak_kotla/op11/part-r-00000

You have to use --input-fields-terminated-by for export, only during import we will use fields-terminated-by

For your reference.
sqoop export
–connect jdbc:mysql://
–username retail_dba
–password itversity
–staging-table youtube_mostviewed_stg
–table youtube_mostviewed
–export-dir /user/deepak_kotla/op11/part-r-00000
–input-fields-terminated-by ‘\t’
-m 4

After import into retail_export database
