      kerberized hadoop


      It seems the only correct way to run Livy server is to run it under hue user in a kerberized cluster?
      There are two advantages:
      1. hue user is normally (by default in CDH) is allowed to impersonate to other users;
      2. hue already has a keytab maintened by Cloduera Manager.

      This is explained in http://www.cloudera.com/content/www/en-us/documentation/enterprise/latest/topics/cm_sg_yarn_long_jobs.html
      "Configuring Spark on YARN for Long-running Applications".
      Assuming Livy Server creates long-running Spark applications.

      Without --principal and --keytab parameters (and without non-expired kerberos ticket), I am getting:

      The Spark session could not be created in the cluster: ... 37 more

      Without --principal and --keytab parameters, but with a non-expired kerberos ticket for my personal principal, I am getting:

      ps. hue.keytab is located in

      $ sudo ls -ltr /var/run/cloudera-scm-agent/process | grep hue-KT_RENEWER | tail -1 | awk '

      {print $9}

      on hosts running "Kerberos Ticket Renewer" Hue role. This is the directory that must be passed to --keytab parameter to spark-submit.

      Irrespective of Hue, Livy Server should have parameters to allow to pass --principal and --keytab to spark-submit. So it's easier (or maybe the only way) to use in kerberized environmens.
