Active Directory And ElasticMapReduce

Bruno Faria shows how to use AWS’s CloudFormation to extend Active Directory into an AWS ElasticMapReduce cluster and run jobs via Kerberos:

In this example, you build a solution that allows Active Directory users to seamlessly access Amazon EMR clusters and run big data jobs. Here’s what you need before setting up this solution:

  • An AWS account
  • An Amazon EC2 key pair
  • A possible limit increase for your account (Note: Usually a limit increase will not be necessary. See the AWS Service Limits documentation if you encounter a limit error while building the solution.)

To make it easier for you to get started, I created AWS CloudFormation templates that automatically configure and deploy the solution for you. The following steps and resources are involved in setting up the solution:

  1. Create and configure an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).
  2. Launch an Amazon EC2 Windows instance (Active Directory domain controller).
  3. Create an Amazon EMR security configuration for Kerberos and cross-realm trust.
  4. Launch an Amazon EMR cluster with Kerberos enabled and a cross-realm trust configuration.

You can use the AWS CloudFormation templates to complete each step individually, or you can deploy the entire solution through a single step.
