Disable Kerberos completely

New Contributor
resource_management.core.exceptions.ExecutionFailed: Execution of '/usr/bin/kinit -kt /etc/security/keytabs/smokeuser.headless.keytab;' returned 1. kinit: Cannot contact any KDC for realm 'CTS.COM' while getting initial credentials

My KDC Server is decommissioned before I could have disabled kerberos in my HDP cluster. And now disable kerberos fails with above error which starting zookeeper.

Quite expected as my KDC is already gone.

Any leads how to proceed here and disable kerberos manually via changing config files.
