Unable to access HDFS after enabling kerberos

Unable to access HDFS after enabling kerberos

Explorer

Hi,

 

I'm unable to access HDFS after enabling Kerberos authentication in my cluster. My namenode is in safe mode and is throwing out the below error when trying to execute leave safemode command.

 

PFB the error details:

Re: Unable to access HDFS after enabling kerberos

Hi harsh,

 

The issue was with JCE files, i updated them in the wrong location instead of /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_25/jre/lib/security/.

 

Once i have updated the JCE files in the above location, now i'm able to access HDFS.

 

Thanks for the Help!

 

Regards,

Cibi

Re: Unable to access HDFS after enabling kerberos

Master Guru
Could you tail and check your NameNode log to observe what it prints as a security error when you attempt this request on it?

Does your command use the same JVM (with unlimited JCE jars installed if applicable) as the server does?
