You are getting an Access control exception, because the by default the user is not allowed to create a table. You should give either global level or namespace level privileges to the desired user so that that user can create a table.

Out of the box, only the HBase user will have permissions to grant other permissions, so you have to log in as the hbase user.

You can check https://hbase.apache.org/book.html#appendix_acl_matrix and the security section in the book.

grant  'hbase4', 'RWCA'

# sudo -u hbase kinit -kt /etc/security/keytabs/hbase.service.keytab hbase/hive-spike.example.com@EXAMPLE.COM

# sudo -u hbase hbase shell

hbase(main):001:0> grant 'hbase4','RWCA'
