nifi publishkafka TimeoutException: Failed to update metadata after 5000 ms. what can i do

Rising Star

Hi

I am trying to create a kafka message queue uswing nifi and the publishkafka processor

we are runing kerberos security on our cluster

it times out ( se my log )

I have following settings in my processor

Kafka Brokers sktudv01hdp01.ccta.dk:2181,sktudv01hdp03.ccta.dk:2181,sktudv01hdp02.ccta.dk:2181

Security Protocol PLAINTEXT

Kerberos Service Name

kafka/_HOST@CCTA.DK

SSL Context Service No value set

Topic Name simonkafka

Delivery Guarantee Best Effort

Kafka Key No value set

Key Attribute Encoding UTF-8 Encoded

In my ambari kafka config i have following

Kafka Broker host sktudv01hdp03.ccta.dk zookeeper.connect sktudv01hdp01.ccta.dk:2181,sktudv01hdp03.ccta.dk:2181,sktudv01hdp02.ccta.dk:2181 listeners PLAINTEXT://localhost:6667

the kafka service seems to run without problems on my hadoop environment

My nifi log

Re: nifi publishkafka TimeoutException: Failed to update metadata after 5000 ms. what can i do

@Simon Jespersen

You need to configure two additional properties in the processor:

Change the Kerberos Service name to just kafka

The processor PublishKafka does not support those two additional properties.

@Simon Jespersen

What version of NiFi are you using?

Re: nifi publishkafka TimeoutException: Failed to update metadata after 5000 ms. what can i do

Rising Star

@Wynner we are on Powered by Apache NiFi - Version 1.1.0.2.1.2.0-10

Re: nifi publishkafka TimeoutException: Failed to update metadata after 5000 ms. what can i do

@Simon Jespersen

Create a jaas-client.config file with the principal and keytab for NiFi to use to connect to the broker. Here is one I use for my NiFi:

KafkaClient {
        com.sun.security.auth.module.Krb5LoginModule required
        useKeyTab=true
        storeKey=true
        keyTab="/etc/nifi/2.1.1.0-2/0/kafka.service.keytab"
        principal="kafka/hdp-24-03.openstacklocal@SMENIFI.COM";
    };

Make sure to put it in a directory that the nifi user can access, mine is located in the /etc/nifi/2.1.1.0-2/0/ directory.

Then add the highlighted property to the Advanced nifi-bootstrap-env section in Ambari

34797-screen-shot-2017-09-14-at-95856-am.png

This file must be on all of the nodes in your cluster.

Hi @Wynner thanks for the reply

I created the jaas file on my nifi host

jaas-client.config KafkaClient

<br>[root@sktudv01hdf01 nifi]# cat /etc/nifi/jaas-client.config
KafkaClient {
        com.sun.security.auth.module.Krb5LoginModule required
        useKeyTab=true
        storeKey=true
        keyTab="/etc/security/keytabs/kafka.service.keytab"
        principal="kafka/_HOST@CCTA.DK";
    };
[root@sktudv01hdf01 nifi]#

My kafka configuration is

38649-kafkabroker-config.png

my nifi publisher is configured like this

38650-nifi-kafkapublisher.png

The log file looks like this

It seems that my JAAS file doesnt work properly

Re: nifi publishkafka TimeoutException: Failed to update metadata after 5000 ms. what can i do

@Simon Jespersen

Run this command on your keytab file:

klist -kt /etc/security/keytabs/kafka.service.keytab

Whatever is displayed should be your principal in the jaas-client.config file.

Explorer

@Simon Jespersen

This looks like an authentication issue.

For the given topic can you add ACLs for anonymous user as the protocol is PLAINTEXT?

bin/kafka-acls.sh --authorizer kafka.security.auth.SimpleAclAuthorizer --authorizer-properties zookeeper.connect=<zookeeper:host> --add --allow-principal User:ANONYMOUS --operation Read --operation Write --operation Describe --topic <topic>
