      This is a very weird bug.

      We received a report where a Hadoop client (Impala Catalog server) failed to relogin and crashed every several hours. Initial indication suggested the symptom matched HADOOP-13433.

      But after we patched HADOOP-13433 (as well as HADOOP-15143), Impala Catalog server still kept crashing.


      W0114 05:49:24.676743 41444 UserGroupInformation.java:1838] PriviledgedActionException as:impala/host1.example.com@EXAMPLE.COM (auth:KERBEROS) cause:org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RemoteException(javax.security.sasl.SaslException): Failure to initialize security context
      W0114 05:49:24.680363 41444 UserGroupInformation.java:1137] The first kerberos ticket is not TGT(the server principal is hdfs/host2.example.com@EXAMPLE.COM), remove and destroy it.
      W0114 05:49:24.680501 41444 UserGroupInformation.java:1137] The first kerberos ticket is not TGT(the server principal is hdfs/host3.example.com@EXAMPLE.COM), remove and destroy it.
      W0114 05:49:24.680593 41444 UserGroupInformation.java:1153] Warning, no kerberos ticket found while attempting to renew ticket

      The error “Failure to initialize security context” is suspicious here. Catalogd was unable to log in because of a Kerberos issue. The JDK expects the first kerberos ticket of a principal to be a TGT, however it seems that after this error, because it was unable to login successfully, the first ticket was no longer a TGT. The patch HADOOP-13433 removed other tickets of the principal, because it expects the TGT to be in the principal’s ticket, which is untrue in this case. So finally, it removed all tickets.

      And then

      W0114 05:49:24.681946 41443 UserGroupInformation.java:1838] PriviledgedActionException as:impala/host1.example.com@EXAMPLE.COM (auth:KERBEROS) cause:javax.security.sasl.SaslException: GSS initiate failed [Caused by GSSException: No valid credentials provided (Mechanism level: Failed to find any Kerberos tgt)]

      The error “Failed to find any Kerberos tgt” is typically an indication that the user’s Kerberos ticket has expired. However, that’s definitely not the case here, since it was just a little over 8 hours.

      After we patched HADOOP-13433, the error handling code exhibited NPE, as reported in HADOOP-15143.

      In any case, HADOOP-15143 does not fix the problem, since valid credentials were already removed from the user.

      Also, even after HADOOP-13433 was applied, I still saw the following error:

      W0113 14:33:44.254727 1255277 UserGroupInformation.java:1838] PriviledgedActionException as:impala/host1.example.com@EXAMPLE.COM (auth:KERBEROS) cause:javax.security.sasl.SaslException: GSS initiate failed [Caused by GSSException: No valid credentials provided (Mechanism level: The ticket isn't for us (35) - BAD TGS SERVER NAME)]


      We traced the SaslException back to a particular remote DataNode. Finally, it turns out that the DataNode's host has an incorrect krb5.conf, which points to a decommissioned KDC, inconsistent with the rest of the hosts in the cluster. Upon authentication, it seems the error handling for the SaslException has a race condition, and occasionally it removes valid credential from the UGI. When we corrected the krb5.conf on that host, this error disappeared.

      This is not easy to reproduce, but we are told this issue seems to occur after Impala user performs a "refresh" command. Presumably this command forces Impala catalog server to connect to the problematic DataNode and triggered the buggy code.


      I don't have a patch to fix it but I want to raise this issue for discussion.
