curl command failing

Master Collaborator

my rest server is up and running and the following command works

[root@hadoop1 ~]# curl --negotiate -u : 'http://hadoop1:17001/status/cluster'
1 live servers, 0 dead servers, 6.0000 average load
1 live servers
    hadoop5.xxx.com:16020 1530282635984
        requests=0, regions=6
        heapSizeMB=145
        maxHeapSizeMB=2007

but the other curl commands are failing with authentication error . I have a Kerberos ticket acquired from

/etc/security/keytabs/hbase.service.keytab

[root@hadoop1 ~]# curl -H "Accept: text/xml" http://hadoop1:17001/version

Re: curl command failing

@Sami Ahmad,

You have to use negotiate for all the curl calls

curl --negotiate -u -H "Accept: text/xml" http://hadoop1:17001/version

ok I will use negotiate ..can you tell why I am not seeing the right formatted output of table names but I see "<" ">" around them ?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><TableList><table name="UFM"/><table name="WZ"/><table name="state_code"/></TableList>[root@hadoop1 ~]#

Re: curl command failing

@Sami Ahmad,

This is not an issue. You can use some xml formatter to pretty print it since you are getting proper results.

I am getting the proper results .. the tables are there in the xml list "UFM" "WZ" , how can I make them appear in normal format like ?

UFM

WZ

Re: curl command failing

@Sami Ahmad,

You need to use some XML parsers to parse the results and get the table names to get the desired output you want.

please see above , this is from the hortonworks document , how they are able to get the right output without any xml parsing ?

Re: curl command failing

Master Collaborator

oh the following syntax worked

[root@hadoop1 ~]# curl --negotiate -i -u : -X GET -H "Accept: text" http://$(hostname):17001/

Re: curl command failing

@Sami Ahmad,

To get output in the above format you should not pass the "Accept: text/xml" header. Just try hitting

curl --negotiate -u http://hadoop1:17001

Re: curl command failing

Master Collaborator

he doesn't like the syntax of this

# curl --negotiate -u http://hadoop1:17001
curl: no URL specified!
curl: try 'curl --help' or 'curl --manual' for more information
