I too was facing this issue while disabing Kerberos authentication. Got Hbase started by these steps. But the Thrift isn't still able to start giving this error in stderr file: Exception in thread "main" java.io.IOException: Thrift server must run in secure mode to support authentication at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.thrift.ThriftServerRunner.<init>(ThriftServerRunner.java:341) at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.thrift.ThriftServer.doMain(ThriftServer.java:95) at org.apache.hadoop.hbase.thrift.ThriftServer.main(ThriftServer.java:240)
@bgooley I did this yesterday and got it reolved. Thanks! Also I've posted a question with the title "HDFS Replication failing in BDR". Would really appreciate your help/inputs in this regard as I've been stuck on it for a week now. Need to get past this ASAP.
