I currently am working on a cluster, I have setup the configuration such that the users and groups are managed via LDAP. However when I try to give a LDAP user or group permissions on the cluster with
/opt/mapr/bin/maprcli acl edit -type cluster -[user|group] <user>:fcit returns with an error stating that they do not exist. Doesn't Mapr use pam? Any suggestions?
So, after a reinstall, and setup exactly like before. It began to work. I really wish I knew what the problem was, but as for now it is resolved.

MapR does use PAM.
It works great if things are set up correctly but PAM can be a bit ticklish to get right.
Starting at the beginning, which kind of LDAP are you using?
Have you confirmed that the user and/or group exists in PAM?
Have you checked on the local machine to see if PAM sees the user? Is ldap.conf all there?
Is the box configured to use PAM as an authorization? If so, does
Sorry to ask basic questions, but the simple things are most often the problem with this side of things.
