I have CDH 5.2 installed on a 2 node cluster. I also have an OpenLDAP server setup separately. I was successful in configuring Hive with LDAP. I've used the 'LDAP' protocol (ldap://hostname:389 and not ldaps://hostname:636). I'm trying to enable Sentry with Hive now. LDAP was configured with Hive as it seems to be a pre-requisite. I donot have Kerberos enabled. I'm have set sentry.hive.testing.mode to true in sentry-site.xml so that I can skip enabling kerberos for the time being.
My question is:
1. Can sentry be enabled with ldap? or is ldaps required to enable sentry?
2. Could you please give me some documentation or links which will help me in enabling sentry for Hive? any or all sources will be helpful.
