Hi All, I was facing the same issue where echo command was working but cat command was creating problem and locking the account due to extra $ character in password file. When you will cat the password file using -e option you will get an extra $ character at the end cat -e impala_passwd.pwd = mypass1234$ extra $ is culprit. You need to remove it using tr command or create the file in windows using notepad put your password and tranfer it to the linux server and it shall work. impala-shell -l --auth_creds_ok_in_clear --impalad=node2:21000 -u user1 --ldap_password_cmd='cat /home/user1/auto_impala.pwd'
