Httpfs - Shows 403 error

The simple httpfs url http://<host-name>/:14000/ - fails with 403 error in one environment.


It is also the case whe I try to access the rest API url "/webhdfs/v1/user/" along with correct username and doas parameters.


This is the message I get


HTTP Status 403 -

type Status report


description Access to the specified resource () has been forbidden.


HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden


There are other working environments, where a hit to the basic 14000 port gives the below message


HttpFs service, service base URL at /webhdfs/v1.


Question is : What is the permission issue I'm running into and what conf files/directory permissions should I be looking at.


Thanks in advance.
