Why the command works somewhere else but not in the paid lab environment? Can anyone explain?


#1

From this post:

It is clear that the post author got his/her commands working in his/her own cluster, I copied everything there and just replace the cluster’s name, but it is not working in the lab!!!

and to practice avro we must manually include a package when launching the spark-shell.

Now I highly doubt the sqoop is not generating sequence file correctly


and its reason could be the lab.

The lab really wasted me lots of time on these sort of things. And we paid!

Can anyone explain?


#2

Is it still an outstanding issue?

Sequence File is hadoop specific and I do not think there will be emphasis about it as part of the exam especially using Spark.
