Sentry-site.xml not generating by cloudera manager

Explorer

Hi

 

I have added Sentry service in cloudera. I have two doubts :-

 

1. There is no option to set Directory path of Sentry-site.xml in cloudera so i thought by default it will be in etc/sentry/conf folder

/opt/cloudera/parcels/CDH-5.3.1-1.cdh5.3.1.p0.5/etc/sentry/conf.dist

 

I went to above location in client ..


I am afraid there is one sentry-site.xml but that XML have default values and also there is no tag "Autogenerated by cloudera manager" in XML file..
so i doubt this is not orignal sentry-site.xml so question is that if this is not orignal sentry-site.xml so where can i find correct XML file ?

I tried to find in each folder of client but there is no updated file..

 

I have to pass few additional dependency from Sentry Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for sentry-site.xml of cloudera but i cant see "Deploy client configuration" in cloudera and restart service will purge dependency not deploy client config..

 

Thanks for you help in advance

Sentry, as a service, has its own service-side config maintained and generated by CM within its special process directory. To view any service-side generated configs, visit its instance page and then the processes tab under it. In your case, CM -> Sentry -> Instances -> Sentry Server -> Processes -> sentry-site.xml.

Please also consider reading http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera/en/documentation/core/latest/topics/cm_intro_primer.html to understand your Cloudera Manager architecture better.
