1. Optional: Set Up LDAP or Active Directory Authentication

By default Ambari uses an internal database as the user store for authentication and authorization. If you want to add LDAP or Active Directory (AD) external authentication in addition for Ambari Web, you need to collect the following information and run a special setup command. Ambari Server must not be running when you execute this command.


Ambari Server should not be running when you do this: either make the edits before you start Ambari Server the first time or bring the server down to make the edits.
