             Summary: Ambari 1.7 to 2.1.x upgrade with existing Kerberos, keytab files fail
to be distributed to some hosts
                 Key: AMBARI-13425
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: ambari-server
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
            Reporter: Robert Levas
            Assignee: Robert Levas
             Fix For: 2.1.3

When upgrading from Ambari 1.7 to 2.1.x, where the source cluster has been Kerberized, keytab
files fail to distribute to some hosts.  

*Steps to reproduce*
# Create cluster with Ambari 1.7.0 (multiple nodes, required)
# Enable Kerberos (manually)
# Upgrade to Ambari 2.1.2
# Enable Kerberos (automated)
# Not all hosts will receive keytab files

This is due to the way Ambari keeps track of which components (on each host) are properly
Kerberized.  So if Kerberos was enabled before the upgrade to 2.x, at some point the agents
will report back to Ambari that its components are secured with Kerberos.  Ambari will then
use this data to determine which hosts need to be processed when enabling Kerberos. If some
of the hosts have reported back before the determination of which hosts need to be process,
those hosts will most-likely be skipped and thus, the new keytab files will not be distributed
to them.

The solution is to remove outdated code previously used to determine how to handle scenarios
where new services are added to a Kerberized cluster.  This code compared the existing services'
security state with some desired security state.  If they matched, then no work needed to
be done.  The state in particular is {{SECURED_KERBEROS}} and can be seen in the {{security_state}}
column of the {{hostcomponentstate}} table.  

The code in question is outdated since new services being added to a Kerberized cluster no
longer  requires the invocation of the {{KerberosHelper.toggleKerberos}} method.  The current
implementing invokes more granular code to  configure the relevant service(s) and generate
the Kerberos identities in a more granular fashion during state changes rather then after
the fact.
