Configuring Views for Kerberos

If the cluster that your views communicate with is Kerberos-enabled, you must:

  • Configure all Ambari Server instances for Kerberos.

  • Configure each view for Kerberos.

  • Install the Kerberos client utilities on the Ambari Server so that Ambari can kinit.

    • RHEL/CentOS/Oracle Linux

      yum install krb5-workstation
    • SLES

      zypper install krb5-client
    • Ubuntu/Debian

      apt-get install krb5-user krb5-config
  • If a view requires HDFS or WebHCat to be configured for a proxy user, you must use the primary Kerberos principal as that user, instead of the ambari-server daemon user.

    For example, if you configure Ambari Server for Kerberos principal ambari-server@EXAMPLE.COM, this value would be ambari-server.

Follow specific instructions to configure each view for Kerberos, and the cluster for Kerberos access from the view.
