@Neeraj Sabharwal, thanks for sharing this link.

@Neeraj Sabharwal, can you suggest me any article or provide me steps to do so?

@Neeraj Sabharwal, thanks for sharing link, got required information.

@Neeraj Sabharwal,There are ranger hbase-plugin enabled but no kerberos in our environment,we have found that authentication only works for OS users but not for AD users, must hbase authentication enable kerberos? Doesn't hbase support AD authention?

Thanks in advance : )
