So I turned off my firewall and now I am getting a different error "Access denied for user 'root'@'192.168.11.139'
Jul 19 2014 07:20 AM
I ran this command on MySQL after finding the ip on HDFS using ifconfig
>> GRANT ALL ON *.* TO firstname.lastname@example.org IDENTIFIED by 'root' WITH GRANT ON OPTION;
Next followed these steps on HDFS
#1. cd /usr/lib/sqoop
#2. sqoop import --connect jdbc:mysql://192.168.11.1/ash --table player --username root -P --target-dir /user/cloudera/sqoopOut1 -m 2
any help will be appreciated
