Error getting "The HADOOP engine cannot be found." while using libname

Hi,

I am trying to connect SAS 9.3 over Windows 2008 64 Bit to Hadoop 2.4.0 Apache distribution. I can run the following command successfully


proc hadoop username='hadoop' password='mypassword' verbose;

   hdfs mkdir='/tmp/d';

run;


But when I try to use libname, I get the following error.


  proc sql;

   connect to hadoop (user="myuser" pw=XXXXXXX server=hxpduped);

ERROR: The HADOOP engine cannot be found.

ERROR: A Connection to the hadoop DBMS is not currently supported, or is not installed at your

       site.

  libname hdp hadoop BL_PORT=9001 server="xx.xx.xx.xx" port=10000 subprotocol=hive2

  ! schema=default

   user=hadoop password=XXXXXXXX verbose;

ERROR: The HADOOP engine cannot be found.

ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.

Is something missing in the jar files? I have setup SAS_HADOOP_JAR_PATH and SAS_HADOOP_CONFIG.

From what I can see in the SAS online documentation, proc hadoop is part of Base SAS, while libname hadoop requires the SAS/ACCESS to Hadoop module. I suspect you don't have the latter licensed/installed.
