Possible Values

None, Negotiate

Data Type


Default Value



This field is used to authenticate against the server. Use the following options to select your authentication scheme:

  • None: Set this to use anonymous authentication and connect to the HDFS data source without specifying the user credentials.
  • Negotiate: If AuthScheme is set to Negotiate, the cmdlet will negotiate an authentication mechanism with the server. Set AuthScheme to Negotiate if you want to use Kerberos authentication.

This is a required parameter.
