HBase using Java:SASL authentication failed and Failed to find any Kerberos tgt in secured cluster

New Contributor


Hi all,


I am trying to access HBase using Java API and I am running Java program on my local windows machine. I am using hbase-site.xml also. Connection is getting established for zookeeper and getting kerberos and sasl exception.


configuration config = HBaseConfiguration.create();
config.addResource(new Path(System.getenv("HBASE_CONF_DIR"),"hbase-site.xml"));

UserGroupInformation userGroupInformation = UserGroupInformation.loginUserFromKeytabAndReturnUGI("username", "krb5.keytab");
System.out.println("getLoginUser :: "+UserGroupInformation.getLoginUser());
Admin admin=null;
System.out.println("passed conf");
Connection connection = ConnectionFactory.createConnection(config);
admin = connection.getAdmin();

System.out.println("passed admin");

TableName[] tables = admin.listTableNames();
System.out.println("passed tablename");
for(TableName table: tables){
System.out.println("Table name is");
