Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6666) Abort NameNode and DataNode startup if security is enabled but block access token is not enabled.
Date Tue, 31 Mar 2015 23:56:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6666?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14389703#comment-14389703

Vijay Bhat commented on HDFS-6666:

[~cnauroth], [~arpitagarwal] I can take this on.

I've made the code changes for the namenode and datanode to abort if they find an inconsistency
between security being enabled and the block access token disabled.

I've also added a test case in org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.namenode.TestSecureNameNode,
however I am having trouble getting kerberos test cases to execute. The test always seems
to get skipped. I tried running with the kerberos profile (https://github.com/apache/hadoop/blob/trunk/hadoop-common-project/hadoop-auth/BUILDING.txt)
with the command:

mvn test -PtestKerberos -Dtest=org.apache.hadoop.hdfs.server.namenode.TestSecureNameNode

All test cases in TestSecureNameNode still get skipped. Any pointers on how I can get them
to run? Appreciate the help!

>             Project: Hadoop HDFS

>            Assignee: Vijay Bhat
>            Priority: Minor
> Currently, if security is enabled by setting hadoop.security.authentication to kerberos,
but HDFS block access tokens are disabled by setting dfs.block.access.token.enable to false
(which is the default), then the NameNode logs an error and proceeds, and the DataNode proceeds
without even logging an error.  This jira proposes that this it's invalid to turn on security
but not turn on block access tokens, and that it would be better to fail fast and abort the
daemons during startup if this happens.
