Usually this indicates that the Account might be locked from the Active Directory (or MIT KDC Side).

Please check from the AD (KDC) side if there is any issue.

Example for unlocking the principal from MIT KDC side:

A principal which has been locked out can be administratively unlocked with the-unlockoption to themodprinckadmin command:

kadmin: modprinc -unlock $PRINCNAME

If you have KDC and AD integrated, this simply means the account to which the keytab is related has been disabled, locked, expired, or deleted.

The AD service account should NEVER expire.

If not could you validate the below steps

Make sure the [realms] and [domain_realms] entries in cat /etc/krb5.conf is correct.

Validate the contents of these 2 files /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kdc.conf , /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kadm5.acl

Check the hdfs prinncipal

# kadmin.local 
Authenticating as principal hdfs-uktehdpprod/admin@EUROPE.ODCORP.NET with password. 
kadmin.local: listprincs hdfs* 

Get the correct prncipal for hdfs

# klist -kt /etc/security/keytabs/hdfs.headless.keytab

Try grabbing a valid Kerberos ticket

# kinit -kt /etc/security/keytabs/hdfs.headless.keytab hdfs-uktehdpprod@EUROPE.ODCORP.NET
