Cluster security requirements for DLM-enabled clusters
You must configure a minimum set of security actions on each HDP cluster as part of configuring security for DLM-enabled clusters. You can perform any additional security-related tasks as appropriate for your environment and company policies. You must also have completed the security configuration requirements for clusters used with DPS.
If you will be performing Hive replication with the Data Lifecycle Manager (DLM) service, the following tasks must be completed during cluster installation, prior to configuring Hive.
