Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-4266) Allow users to enter containers as UID:GID pair instead of by username
Date Sat, 26 Aug 2017 15:37:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-4266?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16142846#comment-16142846
] 

Daniel Templeton commented on YARN-4266:
----------------------------------------

OK, I buy that, but if a site uses the LDAP mapping, I would assume it's because they want
to avoid setting up PAM to use LDAP.  Now that's not an option, and the LDAP mapping becomes
kinda useless when Docker is in play.  OR maybe I'm just misremembering how the mappings work.

> Docker provides a mechanism (the --user switch) that enables us to specify the user the
container processes should run as. We use this mechanism today when launching docker containers
. In non-secure mode, we run the docker container based on `yarn.nodemanager.linux-container-executor.nonsecure-mode.local-user`
and in secure mode, as the submitting user. However, this mechanism breaks down with a large
number of 'pre-created' images which don't necessarily have the users available within the
image. Examples of such images include shared images that need to be used by multiple users.
We need a way in which we can allow a pre-defined set of users to run containers based on
existing images, without using the --user switch. There are some implications of disabling
this user squashing that we'll need to work through : log aggregation, artifact deletion etc.,
