> For some users, Falcon server fails to perform any operations on workflow engine after
the kerberos credentials expire. Falcon server revalidates the credentials from keytab on
access saying ugi.checkTGTAndReloginFromKeytab(), but this operation will not work when ugi
belongs to proxy user. The relogin should be done on UserGroupInformation.getLoginUser() for
the falcon credentials to be renewed. 
> Also, there is a periodic relogin thread which just needed to call the checkTGTAndRelogin
alone instead of trampling Subject.
> The error looks as follows.
> {code}
> falcon instance -list -type process -name procName 
> log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.hadoop.security.authentication.client.KerberosAuthenticator).

> log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly. 
> log4j:WARN See http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/faq.html#noconfig for more info. 
> ERROR: Bad Request;default/org.apache.falcon.FalconWebException::org.apache.falcon.FalconException:
