Problem with Documentation for HA Services with Knox

Expert Contributor

May be the official documentation for Knox Services with HA found here is wrong?:

https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.5/bk_security/content/setting_up_knox_service...

Specifically I had problems making this work for the case of HBase were it states that the service role is "HBASE" but after debugging and looking at the services definitions under "/usr/hdp/current/knox-server/data/services" I found out that there is no service definition with that role name.

The HBase related services there are in the folder "/hbase/0.98.0" with role name "WEBHBASE" and in "/hbaseui/1.1.0/service.xml" with role name "HBASEUI". After setting these values Knox is working as expected.

Please confirm if this is right (and in this case correct the documentation) or I should use a role name different from the ones configured in sevices.xml for HA
