  1. Add one of the following lines to the file:

    • If the underlying file system has MapR security enabled, add the following line:
      export MAPR_TICKETFILE_LOCATION=/opt/mapr/conf/mapruserticket

  2. Restart the Drillbit process on each Drill node.

    maprcli node services -name drill-bits -action restart -nodes <hostname> -f
