Error in accessing google cloud storage bucket via hadoop fs -ls that runs on Cloudera Hadoop CDH 6.3.3 integrated with Kerberos/SSL/LDAP cluster

New Contributor



I am getting the below error while accessing a Google Cloud Storage bucket for the first time via Cloudera CDH 6.3.3 Hadoop Cluster. I am running the command on the edge node where Google Cloud SDK is installed. Reachability of Google Storage is only possible via HTTP proxy as of now.


Cloudera CDH 6.3.3 cluster is on-prem.


Below is the command that I run:


hadoop --loglevel trace fs -ls gs://distcppoc-2021-08-09/


Error is:


ls: Error accessing: bucket: distcppoc-2021-08-09


Last few lines when the Hadoop command is run:

gsutil command works fine when it is run from an on-prem cluster.

GCS Connector is installed on all the Cloudera Cluster Hadoop nodes at the below location:


Location: /opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-6.3.3-1.cdh6.3.3.p4762.13062148/jars
Jar file: gcs-connector-hadoop3-1.9.10-cdh6.3.3-shaded.jar


Can I get some help here?

P.S: This is the first time I am putting a question, so please correct me if I am putting the question in the wrong way.


Cloudera Employee

The user with which you are trying to access the bucket has all the appropriate permissions to read,write on that particular bucket ?

New Contributor

Hi @Atahar 


Yes, I have made the user 'StorageAdmin' just to avoid any confusion.



Cloudera Employee

So does the storageadmin has all the required permissions on the bucket ?
