Hive metadata server failing

Contributor

Hello Team,

After enabling kerberos on HDP-2.6, Hive metadata server is failing. Getting following error in hive metastore log:

@Bhushan Kandalkar

Can you start with the following checks to investigate the SaslTransport issues, first the hive keytab

# ll /etc/security/keytabs/hive.service.keytab 

Desired output see ownership and permission bits !!!

-r--r----- 1 hive hadoop 353 Oct 11 10:49 /etc/security/keytabs/hive.service.keytab 

Check the Hive--->Configs--->Advanced hive-site check the hive.server2.authentication.kerberos.principal

Desired output

hive/_HOST@REALM 

This should match the entry in the Kerberos database, validate by running on the KDC server the below command as root user

# kadmin.local 
kadmin.local: listprincs 

Desired output hive/$FQDN@REALM

Lastly, Can you regenerate the keytabs using the Ambari Kerberos wizard the restart the cluster
