With CDH 5.7.2-1.cdh5.7.2.po.18, I am trying to use Cloudera Manager to configure HBase to use visibility labels and authorizations, as described in the post below: Cloudera Manager Hbase Visibility Labels Using Cloudera Manager, I have successfully updated the values of the following properties: hbase.coprocessor.region.classes: Set to org.apache.hadoop.hbase.security.visibility.VisibilityController hbase.coprocessor.master.classes: Set to org.apache.hadoop.hbase.security.visibility.VisibilityController hbase.security.authorization: Set to true Unfortunately, for whatever reason, Cloudera Manager doesn't expose the hfile.format.version variable, so I am unable to set it to 3. When I restart HBase after updating only the three aforementioned variables, errors such as the following appear in the role log: ERROR org.apache.hadoop.hbase.coprocessor.CoprocessorHost: The coprocessor org.apache.hadoop.hbase.security.visibility.VisibilityController threw java.lang.RuntimeException: A minimum HFile version of 3 is required to persist security labels. Consider setting hfile.format.version accordingly. I'd love to set hfile.format.version accordingly, but... how would I do that, when it's not exposed in Cloudera Manager? For example, is there some config file on the file system that I can modify? Cloudera Manager has to be getting the current settings from somewhere. Thanks!
