How to disable kerberos in CDP 7

New Contributor



We have recently upgrade from CDH to CDP 7.1.7. Now we want to disable Kerberos on CDP cluster. Is it feasible to do so. I know it is not recommended by Cloudera to disable Kerberos. But still we want to do that to implement one use case. Could someone tell me how to disable kerberos for whole cluster in CDP 7.

There is no one Click solution in CDP to disable kerberos. As you pointed out, it is not recommended to disable kerberos once it's configured. Without kerberos, Ranger and other services might not work properly as Kerberos is the core security in CDP.
