Problem Description

When executing a Talend 6.3.1 Job with a tSqoopImport component that imports data from a Vertica database to a Hadoop Cluster, it fails with the following exception:

[ERROR]: org.apache.sqoop.tool.BaseSqoopTool - Got error creating database manager: java.io.IOException: 
No manager for connect string: jdbc:vertica://tlnd.local:5433/hlsmtc_dev

Problem root cause

The Sqoop Supported Databases page lists the databases for which Sqoop includes vendor-specific support, but Vertica is not in the list. So a generic manager and Vertica JDBC driver class (specified in tSqoopImport) have to be provided by Talend.

Solution or Workaround

This problem is fixed against the following versions: 6.4.2, 6.5.1, 6.3.3.


Against Talend 6.3.1, one solution is to apply Patch_20171004_TPS-2161_v2-6.3.1.zip. To implement this solution, this patch can be applied manually:

  1. Create a folder named patches under your Studio installer directory.
  2. Copy Patch_20171004_TPS-2161_v2-6.3.1.zip to this folder.
  3. Restart Talend Studio. When a prompt window is displayed, click OK to install the patch.


Another option is to configure a tSqoopImport component in Advanced Settings > Additional Arguments as follows:

  • Provide the Vertica JDBC driver class: set the "jdbc.driver.class" argument with value "com.vertica.jdbc.Driver".
  • Provide the sqoop manager class: set the "connection-manager" argument with value "org.apache.sqoop.manager.GenericJdbcManager".

Is this patch will work with Talend 7.0.1 (TOS_BD-20180411_1414-V7.0.1)?
