> Note: I don't believe the below is specific to add host, but related to the prompting
and how the set admin cred works in case of a blank password. I hit this during testing of
add host though.
> - install cluster, kerberize
> - add host (be sure to use a new browser so you know it will prompt for kerb admin credentials)
> - got to the review part of add host, click deploy
> - prompted for admin creds (as expected)
> - tried messing around by putting in bad creds and that seemed to work...
> - expect when I put in the right admin cred principal name (admin/admin) but a blank
password. I was surprised it allowed me to click save (because the password field was blank)
> - so I click save, dialog disappears and I am cannot get it to re-prompt.
> - this is what it PUT and the response was blank...

> 17:58:05,860  INFO [qtp1257282095-603] AmbariManagementControllerImpl:1171 - Received
a updateCluster request, clusterId=2, clusterName=MyCluster, securityType=null, request={
clusterName=MyCluster, clusterId=2, provisioningState=null, securityType=null, stackVersion=HDP-2.2,
desired_scv=null, hosts=[] }
> {code}
> - back in wizard doesn't solve it. had to completely exit wizard and ambari web to start
> The overall issue is how the credentials are being validated.  If no password is being
set, the command to test the credentials when using a MIT KDC generates the following command:
> {code}
> kadmin -p admin/admin -w "" -r EXAMPLE.COM -q 'get_principal admin/admin'
> {code}
> The empty password ({{-w ""}}) in the command creates an interactive session where the
command is waiting for data on STDIN, thus hanging the process.
> An empty password should not cause the same behavior when using Active Directory.
