Subject Re: Delegation Token renewal in yarn-cluster

Sounds like your test was set up incorrectly. The default TTL for
tokens is 7 days. Did you change that in the HDFS config?

The issue definitely exists and people definitely have run into it. So
if you're not hitting it, it's most definitely an issue with your test
