Recover Knox admin password

New Contributor

Hi,

 

I have inherited some Hadoop 3.1.1 clusters. There is a configured connection between SAP BO and Hadoop using Knox 1.0.0 as the Proxy for authentication.

 

The problem that I have is that I don´t count with user to authenticate to Knox, and I need to edit the gateway.

 

Is there a way to recover the admin password?

 

Thanks for your support.

Hello @josr89 

 

Thanks for using Cloudera Community. You have mentioned Hadoop 3.1.1 & I am assuming you aren't referring to any HDP/CDH (Legacy) or CDP Platforms.

 

The Steps to recover Knox Admin Password is more akin to reset of Knox Admin Password & does involve re-provisioning the Certificates and Credentials. This is a fairly risky Operation & we would recommend performing the same with Cloudera Support. The Doc [1] covers the same for your reference.
