On a BDA cluster with MIT Kerberos enabled, the webhcat test fails with an error like:

Webhcat Test output
TEST: create a hcatlog database directory
TEST: create a hcatlog database
{"error":"java.lang.reflect.UndeclaredThrowableException"}ERROR: Timed out running creating a hcatlog database. HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error
Please check details in webhcat_test.out

{"error":"java.lang.reflect.UndeclaredThrowableException"}ERROR: Timed out running creating a hcatlog database. HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error
Webhcat test failed


The webhcat_test.out test output file shows authentication errors like:
