Kerberos not authenticating from Hadoop Gateway node

Solved Go to solution

Kerberos not authenticating from Hadoop Gateway node

All,

I have a HDFS/Spark/YARN gateway node that has been assigned the roles via cloudera manager. However, Kerberos is preventing me from accessing HDFS from the gateway node. I could generate TGT via kinit command. I could access HDFS from other nodes in the hadoop cluster using the same user id and same steps.

All kerberos configuration files in the gateway node seems to be in place. Any suggestions what i could have missed?

Hi @VamshiDevraj ,

 

Since your klist shows you do have a TGT but Java cannot find it, the most likely cause is that the version of Java you are using does not support aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96 encryption as it is configured.  Can you try doing "java -version" to find out what version of Java your client is using?

 

Note the changes that have occurred as mentioned on this page:

https://golb.hplar.ch/2017/10/JCE-policy-changes-in-Java-SE-8u151-and-8u152.html

 

If your client is using a version of the JDK older than 1.8 update 162, some sort of configuration needs to be done in that JDK to allow it to support AES256 and be able to access your TGT.

 

Given what you showed us, there is a relatively high probability this will help.

However, one thing worth noting is i don't see any principle for "cdws.company.fr" in kerberos credential tab in CM. Is this causing the issue and how could I resolve it?

 

Many thanks,

Re: Kerberos not authenticating from Hadoop Gateway node

Hi @bgooley ,

 

I see your point. I realized now that the JDK on the gateway node is 1.6 while all other nodes are on JDK1.8. This indeed could be causing the problem.

 

I'll first upgrade to jdk1.8 and attempt later....thank you so much.

 

Regards,

Vamshi
