kerberos principals mapping to operating system users

How do i  know the if the kerberos principals are mapped to local operating system users in my hadoop environment. I was looking for this configuration property but couldnt locate. We are running CDH 5.1.2 on BDA and i know we enabled kerberos and is running healthy.

 

Thanks

Re: kerberos principals mapping to operating system users

Hi Oraclo,

CM does not allow you to configure the kerberos principal names in any way right now. For example, HDFS always uses "hdfs" as the kerberos principal short name, even if you configure the process to be something else.

We're working on making these configurable in a future release, so stay tuned!

Thanks,
Darren
