Yuanbo Liu updated HADOOP-13707:
--------------------------------
    Description: 
In {{HttpServer2#hasAdministratorAccess}}, it uses 
`hadoop.security.authorization` to detect whether HTTP is authenticated.
It's not correct, because enabling Kerberos and HTTP SPNEGO are two steps. If 
Kerberos is enabled while HTTP SPNEGO is not, some links cannot be accessed, 
such as "/logs", and it will return error message as below:
{quote}
HTTP ERROR 403
Problem accessing /logs/. Reason:
User dr.who is unauthorized to access this page.
{quote}

We should use {{adoop.http.authentication.type}} instead of 
{{hadoop.security.authorization}} to detect whether HTTP authentication is 
enabled, if the value of  {{hadoop.http.authentication.type}}  equals `simple`, 
anybody has administrator access.
