      Description

      Putting ldap_password_cmd in the .impalarc file results in a parse error when impala-shell starts up. Judging from the impala-shell source, it looks like a dest= parameter is missing so there's no config file equivalent for the --ldap_password_cmd command-line option. E.g. here's one with a config file equivalent and one without:

      parser.add_option("--auth_creds_ok_in_clear", dest="creds_ok_in_clear",
                          action="store_true", help="If set, LDAP authentication " +
                          "may be used with an insecure connection to Impala. " +
                          "WARNING: Authentication credentials will therefore be sent " +
                          "unencrypted, and may be vulnerable to attack.")
        parser.add_option("--ldap_password_cmd",
                          help="Shell command to run to retrieve the LDAP password")
