On a CDH 5.0.1 secure client/edge server running 'impala-shell' V1.3.1-cdh5 to access an HDFS cluster on a V3.0.1/CDH 5.0.1 secure BDA cluster (e.g. Kerberos enabled) these errors are raised:

Error connecting: TTransportException, Could not connect to <clientname>


Error connecting: TTransportException, Could not start SASL

The sequence leading to each is below.  The examples make "bdanodex" which represents the BDA node running the Impala Daemon being connected to and use the default Impala Daemon Frontend port of 21000.

Note: You can connect to any host in your cluster that is running the impalad daemon. If port 21000 is not correct for the environment use the port required. For example if you connect to an instance of impalad that was started with an alternate port specified by the --fe_port flag, provide that alternative port.  

1. For:  Error connecting: TTransportException, Could not connect to <bdaclient>
