Administering Ambari Views
Also available as:

Configure Ambari 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.
    OS FamilyInstall Command
    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.
