Following these steps does not work in my case. I get the dialog message "Kerberos configuration on system XXXXXXX is invalid. Authenticate with IBM user ID and password". "Kerberos is not configured properly for user authentication on system XXXXXXX".

So I looked in ACS to see what its parms are but that detail is not exposed. So I used the old iNav to look at my user profile -> Capabilities -> EIM tab. I used the values there to manually input, restarted RDi it asked for a password then prompted me with the default User ID and password dialog, I shut down then restart RDi. It repeated the same authentication steps. I had to always supply my IBM I user ID and password.

I am able to use Kerberos in ACS without needing to specify anything more than telling it to use Kerberos. I wonder what the difference with RDi is.

Thanks, Matt

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Kerberos & password

I was a little surprised when the new Kerberos authentication prompted me for a password for my first login. I restarted RDi several times and it never prompted me again (even after a reboot). Why did it make me enter a password the first time? Is it simply caching the password somewhere?


In Preferences, under Authentication:

--Authenticaion options: Kerberos

--Kerberos Parameters: Automatically determine parameters for Kerberos
