Executive Ballroom 210C/G

Many enterprise are implementing Hadoop projects to manage and process large datasets. Big question is: how to configure Hadoop clusters to connect to enterprise directory containing 100k+ users and groups for access management. Several large enterprises have complex directory servers for managing users and groups. Many advanced features have been recently added to Hadoop user management in order to support various complex directory server structures.

In this session attendees will learn about: setting up Hadoop node with users from Active Directory for executing Hadoop jobs, setting up authentication for enterprise users, and setting up authorization for users and groups using Apache Ranger. Attendees will also learn about the common challenges faced in the enterprise environments while interacting with Active Directory including filtering out users to be brought into Hadoop from Active Directory, restricting access to a set of users from Active Directory, handling users from nested group structures, etc.
