Hi @zhuw.bigdata

 

By default the hdfs user will be used.

You can specify any user, but the user needs to exist in both clusters and, if you are preserving permissions, the user needs to be an HDFS superuser, too.

Thanks. With data at-rest encryption, we have to add hdfs user access to all encryption zones. Is this by default?
