Challenges for Kerberos integration using Existing AD on HDP 2.6?


We are trying to setup the Kerberos on our Dev environment using Exising AD and we will also need to do similarly in Production cluster later. What are the challenges that we might face after having necessary prerequisites in handy also?

Note: We do not have Hortonworks Support, what are issues that might occur if we do it on our Production cluster without enterprise support?



@Ram Charan Tej

I understand your worries, usually, when a company has the standard DEV, UAT / PREPROD and PROD environments documentation and consistency is very important.

To be sure you won't have issues maybe to build the confidence you could spin up a cluster almost identical to PROD save for fewer DataNodesand rerun the Kerberos and AD integration while validating all the steps.

Having said that in here (HCC) you will find the help when you run out of options.

But it advisable always to have at least lowest level support for the Production environment.

Good luck
