3.2. Use an Existing Active Directory

To use an existing Active Directory domain for the cluster with Automated Kerberos Setup, you must prepare the following:

  • Ambari Server and cluster hosts have network access to, and be able to resolve the DNS names of, the Domain Controllers.

  • Active Directory secure LDAP (LDAPS) connectivity has been configured.

  • Active Directory User container for principals has been created and is on-hand. For example, "OU=Hadoop,OU=People,dc=apache,dc=org"

  • Active Directory administrative credentials with delegated control of “Create, delete, and manage user accounts” on the previously mentioned User container are on-hand.

Proceed with Enabling Kerberos Security in Ambari.
