Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-3466) The SPNEGO filter for the NameNode should come out of the web keytab file
Date Tue, 29 May 2012 21:28:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-3466?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13285147#comment-13285147

Arpit Gupta commented on HDFS-3466:

It is an unnecessary flexibility (adding extra complexity) to have 2 keys for a keytab. IMO,
we should consolidate both keys in one instead.

Multiple keytabs are needed when you have multiple services needing access to HTTP principal.
For example if oozie will run on the same node as the namenode, then rather than sharing one
keytab that has hdfs, oozie and HTTP principals in one keytab you can create a different keytab
which just has HTTP principal.

We need to do this because as soon as you add the same principal do a different keytab, earlier
keytabs become invalidated.
