Dear all,
I'm now trying to enable security in my MapR cluster. I notice that during configuring a node, there is a "-K|kerberosEnable" option. (http://doc.mapr.com/display/MapR/configure.sh
I'm wondering what is this option used for. I've tried without this option, I can do user authentication using kerberos. Also with this option, user authentication using kerberos is OK. So I feel a bit confused about this option. Seems no matter with or without this option, Kerberos is enabled anyway.
I don't find any MapR documents on this option. Please tell me more if you got some experience.

Thanks
