How to create a Hortonworks cluster without kerberos


Re: HDP Without kerberos


@Amith Dsilva

When you deploy an HDP cluster it's devoid of Kerberos, that's the out of the box setup. The only centralized security framework to manage HDP and provide comprehensive security across the Apache Hadoop ecosystem is Ranger which also package by default but MUST be added at wish.

To enable Kerberos you will have to install a KDC server and explicitly enable the kerberization from the Ambari UI see attached screenshot.
