      This applies to only branch-2.7 or earlier code.
      When a NoAuthException is thrown in non HA mode(like in the scenario of YARN-4127), RM incessantly keeps on retrying the ZK operation.

      This is because we do not handle NoAuthException properly in branch-2.7 code when HA is not enabled.
      In ZKRMStateStore#runWithRetries, we have code as under. As can be seen if HA is not enabled, we neither rethrow NoAuthException nor do we have any logic to increment retries and back out if retries are maxed out.

       T runWithRetries() throws Exception {
            int retry = 0;
            while (true) {
              try {
                return runWithCheck();
              } catch (KeeperException.NoAuthException nae) {
                if (HAUtil.isHAEnabled(getConfig())) {
                  // NoAuthException possibly means that this store is fenced due to
                  // another RM becoming active. Even if not,
                  // it is safer to assume we have been fenced
                  throw new StoreFencedException();
              } catch (KeeperException ke) {
