Hi All,,

 

I checked for the logs in the  /var/log/cloudera-scm-server but below it what it says.

 

LDAP/AD authentication failure for nishan.

 

 

Can I get more verbose logs some where?.

Have you looked in the Active Directory access logs?  What is it saying on that side?

Hey Clint.

It will take some time before I can get hold off those logs  but I had turned  on debugging of API calls  for manger under Administration>Settings  and then re started the server. i am still not able to see any API calls in the cloudera-scm-server.log.Could  you  please help.
