hive view userhome check failed


hive view userhome check failed

Rising Star


I have a kerberized cluster and trying to display hive view. I tried many things as explained in hortonworks documents bu couldn't pass this error.

Service 'userhome' check failed: Authentication required
at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.web.WebHdfsFileSystem.validateResponse(
at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.web.WebHdfsFileSystem.access$200(
at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.web.WebHdfsFileSystem$AbstractRunner.runWithRetry(
at org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.web.WebHdfsFileSystem$AbstractRunner.access$100(

ambari-server principal is ambari-server-mycls, so I added "auth=KERBEROS;proxyuser=ambari-server-mycls" to WebHDFS Authentication part in Hive View config.

I created this hdfs folders (chmod and chown also)


also added ambari-server-mycls user to linux system and created it's home directory.

I also added those lines to custom core-site of hdfs.


Am I missing something?
