Hive Connector error (Kerberos)

I am attempting to connect to Hive via Kerberos authentication, however - I receive the following error: GSS initiate failed

I’ve completed the following:

  • Configured the KNIME Preferences > Kerberos to point to my keytab and I have supplied the necessary principal user.

  • Copied my krb5.conf file to the security sub-directory of KNIME’s jre lib folder.

  • Specified the principal parameter in the Hive connector configuration dialog.

  • Created an active Kerberos token via MIT Kerberos tool (kinit) for the principal/keytab in question.

Is there something I’m missing?

RESOLVED: I had a badly configured principal parameter. It works now
