jay vyas resolved YARN-1943.

    Resolution: Not a Problem

CLOSING this bug, with mixed feelings :) ...

In any case *THANKS* alot for your help on this.  Pointing out that previous JIRA was very
helpful.  I guess we can close this JIRA now.  Hopefully some discussion on the mailing list
will help me to consider some other options!

>             Project: Hadoop YARN
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: nodemanager
>    Affects Versions: 2.3.0
>            Reporter: jay vyas
>            Priority: Critical
>              Labels: linux
>             Fix For: 2.3.0
> As of hadoop 2.3.0, commit cc74a18c makes it so that nonsecureLocalUser replaces the
user who submits a job if security is disabled: 
> {noformat}
>  return UserGroupInformation.isSecurityEnabled() ? user : nonsecureLocalUser;
> {noformat}
> However, the only way to enable security, is to NOT use SIMPLE authentication mode:
> {noformat}
>   public static boolean isSecurityEnabled() {
>     return !isAuthenticationMethodEnabled(AuthenticationMethod.SIMPLE);
>   }
> {noformat}
> Thus, the framework ENFORCES that "SIMPLE" login security --> nonSecureuser for submission
of LinuxExecutorContainer.
> This results in a confusing issue, wherein we submit a job as "sally" and then get an
exception that user "nobody" is not whitelisted and has UID < MAX_ID.
> My proposed solution is that we should be able to leverage LinuxContainerExector regardless
of hadoop's view of the security settings on the cluster, i.e. decouple LinuxContainerExecutor
logic from the "isSecurityEnabled" return value.
