Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-4056) Always start the NN's SecretManager
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2012 23:50:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4056?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13481942#comment-13481942

Kan Zhang commented on HDFS-4056:

bq. I don't see a use case where SIMPLE + SIMPLE and SIMPLE + TOKEN need to be enabled simultaneously

My above comment should read "I don't see a use case where SIMPLE + SIMPLE and SIMPLE + TOKEN
need to be CONFIGURED simultaneously."

bq. In the absence of a new config key, the ambiguity introduced by SIMPLE effectively allows
token-free operation.

That's why I suggest earlier there should be 2 config keys, one for initial auth method and
one for subsequent one. And if we have those configs, we can avoid the unnecessary issuing
of NN tokens when SIMPLE + SIMPLE is configured.
