Fresh Intsallation of Hadoop can be done in the labs&Sqoop

I am new to the labs.

  1. If i can go ahead and start the installation of Hadoop and cluster etc in the labs?
  2. Also suppose i am given a cluster and i have to run a Sqoop job.In such a case how do i get the JDBC connection settings/url(port and connect string) to the MYSQL DB which is installed on the gateway node.

@apurba28, you don’t have administrator privileges on the cluster, so you would not be able to install any service on the cluster. The lab is mainly meant for utilizing the existing services.

  1. The connection string follows the following pattern jdbc:mysql://IPAddressOfNameNode:3306(which is the mysql port)/employees

Thank you pramodvspk for the information!!
