Yongjun Zhang commented on YARN-3021:
-------------------------------------

Restarted my VM (the same one on which I reported the trace stack in my last 
update), and rerun the failed test TestCapacitySchedulerNodeLabelUpdate, and it 
is successful. There is some flakiness with this test but not related to this 
jira.



> YARN's delegation-token handling disallows certain trust setups to operate 
> properly over DistCp

> Consider this scenario of 3 realms: A, B and COMMON, where A trusts COMMON, 
> and B trusts COMMON (one way trusts both), and both A and B run HDFS + YARN 
> clusters.
> Now if one logs in with a COMMON credential, and runs a job on A's YARN that 
> needs to access B's HDFS (such as a DistCp), the operation fails in the RM, 
> as it attempts a renewDelegationToken(…) synchronously during application 
> submission (to validate the managed token before it adds it to a scheduler 
> for automatic renewal). The call obviously fails cause B realm will not trust 
> A's credentials (here, the RM's principal is the renewer).
> In the 1.x JobTracker the same call is present, but it is done asynchronously 
> and once the renewal attempt failed we simply ceased to schedule any further 
> attempts of renewals, rather than fail the job immediately.
> We should change the logic such that we attempt the renewal but go easy on 
> the failure and skip the scheduling alone, rather than bubble back an error 
> to the client, failing the app submission. This way the old behaviour is 
> retained.
