Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6681) Fill AWS credentials when configuring Hadoop on EC2 instances
Date Tue, 06 Apr 2010 18:15:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6681?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12854098#action_12854098
] 

Tom White commented on HADOOP-6681:
-----------------------------------

Passing these credentials automatically may not be what the user wants, and may in fact be
a security liability (since the credentials are passed to the cluster, which may be shared
with other users). You can achieve the same result explicitly with the following command line
arguments:

{code}
--env AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=$AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID \ 
--env AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=$AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
{code}

Does this solve your issue?

> There's a function "configure_hadoop" in the hadoop-ec2-init-remote.sh script used to
configure EC2 nodes for Hadoop. The function actually uses AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
environment variables, but they are never passed to it. It can be fixed in service.py by passing
those variables.
