Support for Custom Kerberos Principals and System Users

Cloudera Manager configures CDP services to use the default Kerberos principal names and default System Users. While it is possible to customize the Kerberos principal names or System users for most cluster services by setting various configuration properties, it requires extensive custom configuration. If your security policies require you to customize the service Kerberos Principals and System User Names, Cloudera recommends working closely with Cloudera Professional services in doing so. For more information, see Customizing Kerberos Principals and System Users.
