    Hi ,

    I want to enbale kerberos security on hdp1.3, I have a new environment installed by ambari.
    Can I enbale kerberos on this cluster directly? or I need use gsintaller to reinstall my cluster, I found only gsinstaller has the doc for enable kerberos.

    Thanks anybody who give me a hand.

    Hi Tracy,
    Currently enabling Kerberos on Ambari installation is not yet supported. It is on the roadmap for a future release. Please continue to visit the site to get the latest news on the releases. Thank you for using HDP.

    Ambari 1.2.5, which is included with HDP 1.3.2, supports Kerberos secure clusters.

    Instructions for installing (or upgrading to) the latest Ambari can be found here…
