    It appears that domain accounts as the “hadoop” user are not supported during the installation process. Is it possible to switch the service account to a domain user after installation and are there any plans to allow a domain user from the get-go. Many organizations do not allow local user accounts.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was able to install using a domain account (which is issued by a separate group in our organization) by doing the following:

    1. Taking the files located under HadoopInstallFiles (generated during an execution of the msi package).
    2. Revising the HadoopPackages/hdp-2.0.6.0-winpkg/scripts/install.ps1 to not call the create_hadoop_user.ps1 script.
    3. Assigned the domain user the correct rights on the machine (log on as service, etc.).
    4. Creating an installHDP.cmd file that sets the ENV parameters needed and then calls the winpkg.cmd.

    The downside of this approach is that the installation does not appear in registry list of installed programs. However, I was able to install on 5 nodes (and one client) with no difficulty and no issues have arisen.

    Hi Dave,

    HDP on Windows installs as Hadoop user. Are you asking if this user can be changed to Hadoop user in Domain? Have you tried doing it? What steps did you take to migrate the user from local to domain?
