      Description

      When hadoop security is enabled,
      https://github.com/apache/storm/blob/master/storm-client/src/jvm/org/apache/storm/security/auth/kerberos/AutoTGT.java#L199-L209

      AutoTGT will invoke "loginUserFromSubject", and it will spawn a TGT renewal thread ("TGT Renewer for <username>").
      https://github.com/apache/hadoop/blob/branch-2.8.5/hadoop-common-project/hadoop-common/src/main/java/org/apache/hadoop/security/UserGroupInformation.java#L928-L957

      which will eventually invoke system command "kinit -R", and then fail with the exception

      org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell$ExitCodeException: kinit: Credentials cache file '/tmp/krb5cc_xxx' not found while renewing credentials
      
      	at org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell.runCommand(Shell.java:1004) ~[stormjar.jar:?]
      	at org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell.run(Shell.java:898) ~[stormjar.jar:?]
      	at org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell$ShellCommandExecutor.execute(Shell.java:1213) ~[stormjar.jar:?]
      	at org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell.execCommand(Shell.java:1307) ~[stormjar.jar:?]
      	at org.apache.hadoop.util.Shell.execCommand(Shell.java:1289) ~[stormjar.jar:?]
      	at org.apache.hadoop.security.UserGroupInformation$1.run(UserGroupInformation.java:1011) [stormjar.jar:?]
      	at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:748) [?:1.8.0_181]
      

      "kinit" will never work from worker process since Storm don't keep TGT in local cache. Instead, TGT is saved in zookeeper and in memory of Worker process.

      This exception is confusing but not harmful to topologies. And the TGT renewal thread will eventually abort.

      It's better to find a real solution for it. But for now we can document what might happen in AutoTGT code.

      To be clear, we still need loginUserFromSubject or some sort but we don't want to spawn TGT renewal thread. This is found with hadoop-2.8.5. Other versions are similar. But it can also change in the future release.
