Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6656) Security framework needs to renew Kerberos tickets while the process is running
Date Tue, 28 Sep 2010 22:45:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6656?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12915957#action_12915957

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-6656:

There are two advantages for kinit:
  1. The kinit re-writes the file so that later processes get the refreshed key.
  2. I couldn't get the renew to work at all. It returned without actually renewing anything.
I didn't track down why it didn't work.

The disadvantage for kinit is the race condition while you are re-writing the file.

If you want to track down why it didn't work, I can post my patch.
