How to switch off two way authentication

  • #48834
    Wout Verschueren

    I’ve installed ambari server and agents on a local cluster with a local repository. Everything seems to work but starting the agents results in an error complaining about two way authentication. A work around is suggested and I tried to set following line in the ambari server configuration file:
    security.server.two_way_ssl=false and then restart the server and the agents, but the same error appears.
    Any idea on how to switch off this authentication?
    The environment is a CentOS 6.4 64 bit OS with ambari server version

    Can you confirm your “yum info ambari-server” version or “ambari-server –version” info?

    Can you try with the latest Ambari 1.4.4?
