Configuring custom Kerberos principal for Cruise Control

The Kerberos principal for Cruise Control is configured by default to use the same service principal as the default process user. However, you can change the default setting by providing a custom principal in Cloudera Manager.

  1. Go to your Cluster in Cloudera Manager.
  2. Select Cruise Control from the list of services.
  3. Go to the Configuration tab.
  4. Search for the Kerberos principal by entering kerberos in the search field.
  5. Provide a custom name to the Kerberos Principal property.
  6. Click Save Changes.
  7. Click on Actions > Restart next to the Cruise Control service name to restart the service.
If you use Ranger for authorization, update all resource-based services and policies that use the old principal and add the new principal. For more information on updating resource-based services and policies, see Using Ranger to Provide Authorization in CDP.
