Unable to save as avrodatafile

Hello Friends,

i am trying to do a sqoopimport and save the file as avrodatafile , but its throwing an error(below).
can anyone look into it and let me know what is the issue.
it works if i try to save as sequence file , but for avrofile and parquet file it gives error.

i am using a VM provided by edureka , as i did my training there .
is the avro-tools missing? how do i install it then?

thanks in advance

here is my command:
sqoop import-all-tables -m 1 --connect “jdbc:mysql://localhost/edurekadb” --username edureka --password edureka --as-avrodatafile --warehouse-dir /user/edureka/avro

here is the log

Thanks @santy,
, i tried the above and got error.
i think i donot have avro installed

[edureka@localhost ~]$ avro-tools
-bash: avro-tools: command not found
[edureka@localhost ~]$

any idea how to install it.


Can you use gw01 server? It is installed there. avro-tools is a wrapper for avro-tools-1.7.5.jar. You can, to get by, download latest avro-tools from apache site and sFTP to edureka and use it locally.
