When I run the Sqoop demo and import a table from MySQL into Cassandra, it seems that the external table for Hive is not being created automatically. The data shows up just fine in Cassandra. I also tried creating my own table in MySQL and running the Sqoop import on that, and I get the same problem. Looking at the HiveMetaStore, I can see that the table is not showing up (e.g. for the demo, there is no entry for npa_nxx_cf). I have been able to create a columnfamily in cqlsh and see the table + data from Hive.
Any thoughts on what might be going on?
