Communication Security Authorization

Updated at: Sep 02, 2021 GMT+08:00

MRS clusters provision, manage, and use big data components through the management console. Big data components are deployed in a user's VPC. If the MRS management console needs to directly access big data components deployed in the user's VPC, you need to enable the corresponding security group rules after you have obtained user authorization. This authorization process is called secure communications.

If the secure communications function is not enabled, MRS clusters cannot be created. If you disable the communication after a cluster is created, the cluster status will be Network channel is not authorized and the following functions will be affected:

  • Functions, such as big data component installation, cluster scale-out/scale-in, and Master node specification upgrade, are unavailable.
  • The cluster running status, alarms, and events cannot be monitored.
  • The node management, component management, alarm management, file management, job management, patch management, and tenant management functions on the cluster details page are unavailable.
  • The Manager page and the website of each component cannot be accessed.

After the secure communications function is enabled again, the cluster status is restored to Running, and the preceding functions become available. For details, see Enabling Secure Communications for Clusters with This Function Disabled.

Enabling Secure Communications During Cluster Creation

  1. Log in to the MRS management console.
  2. Click Buy Cluster. The corresponding page is displayed.
  3. Click Quick Config or Custom Config.

    If Kerberos authentication is enabled for a cluster, check whether Kerberos authentication is required. If yes, click Continue. If no, click Back to disable Kerberos authentication and then create a cluster.

Disabling Secure Communications After a Cluster Is Created

  1. Log in to the MRS management console.
  2. In the active cluster list, click the name of the cluster for which you want to disable secure communications.

    The cluster details page is displayed.

  3. Click the switch on the right of Secure Communications to disable authorization. In the dialog box that is displayed, click OK.

    After the authorization is disabled, the cluster status changes to Network channel unauthorized, and some functions of the cluster are unavailable. Exercise caution when performing this operation.
