SYMPTOM: Ambari smoke test fails for hbase service. Below is the current scenario -
Ranger is installed in the cluster
HBase policy has been enabled
ambari-qa user has the privileges correctly defined in the HBase policy
ERROR: org.apache.hadoop.hbase.security.AccessDeniedException: Insufficient permissions (user=ambari-qa, scope=default, params=[namespace=default,table=default:ambarismoketest,family=family],action=CREATE)
2015-10-27 09:52:03,342 ERROR [main] client.AsyncProcess: Failed to get region location
org.apache.hadoop.hbase.TableNotFoundException: Table 'ambarismoketest' was not found, got: XXXXX01.
If the Ranger co-processor is not correctly defined in the HBase configuration, the smoke test from Ambari would fail. Any table creation as non-hbase user could also fail.
Verify the Ranger configuration for HBase.
Ensure that the following properties are set correctly and that the co-processors include Ranger classes
