Re: Unable to upload new files to encrypted zone in HDFS

FWIW I seem to have found a solution.


I had added  a call to 


but it hadn't worked.


Later in debugging I found that that call was trying to renew the Proxy User, not the underlying principal.


I changed the call so that it would get the principal's ugi and call the same method on that and now it seems to work.


There are still outstanding questions, though, if anyone cares to investigate further:


  • Why was this only necessary for D.A.R.E. ?  All other ops (hdfs, Hive, yarn, etc.) continued working and renewing krbtgt's perpetually
  • Was the upgrade of CDH needed or would it have continued working with the older version?
