Troubleshooting Kerberos in OpsCenter

Troubleshoot OpsCenter Kerberos connections with debug options.

Troubleshoot OpsCenter Kerberos connections with debug options.


The location of the cluster_name.conf file depends on the type of installation:
  • Package installations: /etc/opscenter/clusters/cluster_name.conf
  • Tarball installations: install_location/conf/clusters/cluster_name.conf


  1. Open the cluster-specific configuration file, cluster_name.conf for editing. Replace cluster_name with the name of your cluster.
  2. Add the following to the [kerberos] section to output debug messages during Kerberos connections attempts from OpsCenter:
    debug = True
    The debug option outputs the contents of the server section from the jaas-krb5.conf file, informing you of the settings in use that you can verify against your configuration settings.
  3. Restart OpsCenter.
  4. If deeper debugging is necessary, add to $OPSC_JVM_OPTS. The JVM parameter outputs verbose information about reasons why Kerberos connections attempts are failing, such as not authenticating due to key expiration, or no keys present in keytab, or cannot find keytab, for example.
