    I read some materals and find out there must be at least one slave KDC to use kerberos.

    If I install HDP1.2, where is master KDC and slave KDC installed?

    And basic keys are granted by just install HDP?
    basic keys means hdfs/~~@EXAMPLE.COM like this.. to use hdfs and mapreduce..

    Hi, Mun,

    Can you please point out the materials regarding the slave KDC?

    In HDP 1.2 set up, one KDC server is required.

    For your question regarding teh basic keys, the administrator needs to be set up in order to set up service principles. here is the documentation:

    Hope this helps.
