How to Kerberize Flume?

Hello there,

I have enabled Kerberos on my cluster using an existing MIT KDC that I have running. I ran through the wizard and everything seems to run fine except for flume, where I get the error below...

Having a look at the principals there doesn't seem to be any for flume, why doesn't this get automatically added?

I am wondering what steps I need to take to get flume recognised by Kerberos.

Thanks!

you can create principal and keytabs manually, follow this guide, sorry it's from Pivotal but steps should be interchangeable http://pivotalhd-210.docs.pivotal.io/doc/2100/webhelp/topics/ConfiguringSecureFlume.html

Which version of Ambari are you using, this seems to be an old issue https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-13324
