Where does Cloudera Manager store the LDAP / Kerberos configuration?  I would like to update the settings when I can't get into the GUI.

Login as Admin to CM
1. CM -> Administration -> Kerberos
2. CM -> Administration -> External Authentication for LDAP

 

To setup LDAP for Hue
3. CM -> Hue -> Configuration -> Security

Anyway to change this from the command line instead of the GUI?

 

Assume I can't access the GUI and need to change it from the Linux command line.

Master Guru
Cloudera Manager offers a REST API that you can use to change configuration and perform most actions that you would via the GUI. This would still need connectivity to the CM host and port.

The API usage is documented at http://cloudera.github.io/cm_api/
