Hue Password Reset or password change?

avatar

When running /usr/lib/hue/build/env/bin/hue passwd, I receive the error myself. The directory /var/log/hue is owned by hue, and when running as this account:

[hue@hdp001 ~]$ /usr/lib/hue/build/env/bin/hue passwd

Changing password for user hue

Password: Traceback (most recent call last):

It will ask to change the password for the user, hue, or whichever user runs it. I even changed permissions on /var/log/hue to 777, and received the same error when trying this as my user.

1)python /usr/lib/hue/build/env/bin/hue changepassword -v 2 <user Name>

2)/usr/lib/hue/build/env/bin/hue changepasswd <user Name>

The first option as root works fine.

The second option (/usr/lib/hue/build/env/bin/hue passwd kishore) works as well, but ends up throwing an error, after changing the password. I can see that the password entered persists to Hue whenever logging in with that user.

TypeError: argument 1 must be string or read-only character buffer, not tuple

As my user, I cannot change my password. So this is expected, and sudo / root access is required? Now I receive this error: IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/mannb/logs/passwd.log'

A “logs” directory was created, but owned by root under my home directory.
