SolrCtl instance using JAAS option

I am using Cloudera cluster and it is kerberosed with tsl and ssl enabled. I am trying to use create an instance using the --jaas option in solrctl command but it is not working.

The solrctl command I am using is below


solrctl --jaas jaas-client.conf instancedir --create testindex3 /home/myuserid/testindex3


The jass-client.conf file is below


Client { required useKeyTab=true keyTab="<PATH TO KEYTAB>/username.keytab" storeKey=true useTicketCache=false debug=true principal="<YOUR-REALM>";



For the above command I am getting the error

Uploading configs from /user/myuserid/testindex3/conf to ZookeeperHost1:2181,ZookeeperHost2:2181,ZookeeperHost3:2181/solr. This may take up to a minute.


Debug is true storeKey true useTicketCache false useKeyTab true doNotPrompt false ticketCache is null isInitiator true KeyTab is /username.keytab refreshKrb5Config is false principal is


Error: can't upload configuration



I am not sure why the instance is not created and what i am missing. Is there anything wrong in my jaas.conf file.


Please advise
