When browsing the logs from Yarn UI, we're prompted with this message

"User [dr.who] is not authorized to view the logs for container_e29_1466052817052_0956_01_000002 in log file"

Please help how to solve this issue of mine.

Best regards,

Thanks @Rajeshbabu Chintaguntla

After adding the hadoop.http.staticuser.user=yarn (and as also mentioned by @rguruvannagari), solved my issue.
