How to overwrite HIVE_HOME while using sqoop?

0 votes
I have a situation here. I am using Sqoop with Hive. While I am trying to do any actions (import, export), sqoop is considering the default Hive directory as set to HIVE_HOME. I want to directory to be different. I don't want to change the $HIVE_HOME because it'll cause problems while using Hive and I will have to change it back again. Is there a way to override this Hive home path in sqoop?

Sqoop by default takes the HIVE_HOME as the home directory for Hive. In case you want to override this, you will have to specify the new path explicitly in the sqoop command. Refer to the below syntax to know how to do this:

$ sqoop import <parameters> --hive-home <path to directory>
