Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9004) Allow security unit tests to use external KDC
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 00:50:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9004?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13491098#comment-13491098

Jitendra Nath Pandey commented on HADOOP-9004:
----------------------------------------------

bq. In future JIRAs, I plan to add more security-related unit tests to cover pain points and
stuff that's broken in the past (e.g. hdfs fsck and groups have once been broken with security
enabled).

That will be very helpful. Thanks Stephen!

Do you plan to write tests that work with Apache DS kerberos as well. The advantage is that
developers will not have to bother about setting up a kdc. Ideal would be that these test
cases could be integrated with commit builds.

The patch looks good to me. +1
Minor: You don't have to assertTrue in the finally clause in testSecureNameNode.

> I want to add the option of allowing security-related unit tests to use an external KDC.
> In HADOOP-8078, we add the ability to start and use an ApacheDS KDC for security-related
unit tests. It would be good to allow users to validate the use of their own KDC, keytabs,
and principals and to test different KDCs and not rely on the ApacheDS KDC.
