Please ignore this exception. This exception should just not be printed in the logs for you to see at the INFO level.

These tokens expire and can be renewed by design. This should be transparent to you. The bug is that this exception is printed at all for you to see.


@Josh: We are also facing the same kind of issue. And this causing Hbase regionserver to spin down. Kindly suggest how to avoid the region server failures.

As my previous comment says, this is a benign warning message. It does not indicate any problem with the system.

If you have RegionServers crashing, your problem lies elsewhere. Would suggest you contact support to help you identify this problem if you are having problems doing so.


The above question and the entire reply thread below were originally posted in the Community Help track. On Thu Jun 27 00:18 UTC 2019, a member of the HCC moderation staff moved it to the Hadoop Core track. The Community Help Track is intended for questions about using the HCC site itself, not technical questions about RegionServers or Hbase.
