Ambari Server running as non-root unable to bind SSL socket

Hello,

I enabled HTTPS for my Ambari Server before I changed it to run as a non-root daemon user. After I enabled non-root daemon, I'm getting the following error:

24 Jan 2017 17:06:48,001  WARN [main] AbstractLifeCycle:204 - FAILED SslSelectChannelConnector@0.0.0.0:443: java.net.SocketException: Permission denied

It seems as though even though I've put in all the sudo settings (starting here: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.4.2.0/bk_ambari-security/content/commands_server.... ) the non-root user still doesn't have enough permissions to read the certificate to use for SSL binding. Does anyone know what is needed for this permission issue to be resolved? The SSL certificate and key are installed in /etc/ssl/certs/

I've been searching and I can't seem to find an answer to this.

Thanks

This does not look like SSL error. without SSL ( with http) are you able to start the server successfully?

Sorry, I was just able to get to the office to try this out. This was the issue, thanks for your help! Just out of curiosity, why can't a non-root user use port 443?

Thanks for the update. i think that is OS restriction, you can go through https://www.staldal.nu/tech/2007/10/31/why-can-only-root-listen-to-ports-below-1024/
