YARN Client password issue w/ special characters

New Contributor

I'm having an issue with the YARN clients in my cluster. When the password is set in Ambari and it has a special character of ">" the YARN Client interprets it as "&gt".
Example:
Set passwd - ba(PxO463$bd;>
Passwd in the yarn core-site.xml
lx963:/usr/hdp/2.6.5.0-292/hadoop-yarn/etc/hadoop #grep PxO463$bd core-site.xml
<value>ba(PxO463$bd;&gt;</value>
<value>ba(PxO463$bd;&gt;</value>

Is there a workaround or fix for this?
