After upgrade from IOP (v 4.2.0) to HDP (v 2.6.x) in a kerberized setup, HSI install fails with Configuration parameter 'hive.llap.daemon.service.principal' missing in dictionary.

HSI related keytabs are missing on cluster.


Regenerate keytabs via Ambari.

- Once regeneration is done, you can reinstall HSI and start it.

P.S. : Hive Server Interactive is made up of 2 sub-components : LLAP and Hive2/HiveServer2.

Thanks to @vrathod for reporting it.
