The docs indicate the following:
1.5.3. Optional – Create Hadoop user
HDP installer takes the following actions to create hadoop user for your environment:
• If user hadoop does not exist, HDP installer automatically creates a local user with
• If the user hadoop already exists, HDP installer will change the current password
to a new random password. The random password is passed on the command line
throughout the install process, then discarded.
** Administrator can change the password
later, but it must be done both in the user configuration and in the service objects
installed on each machine via Service Manager.
I have a functional hdp for windows install but need to change the hadoop user account.
I understand how to change the password on Windows and how to change the password for each of the Windows Services they are running under but not sure what is being referenced above when it indicates ‘user configuration’.
Can someone give me steps ?
