Configure a Realm to Use Windows Logon Credentials

If you configure a realm to use your Windows logon credentials, the Kerberos client uses those credentials to get service tickets.

If the Windows realm and user name don't match those specified in your principal profile, you are prompted to authenticate with your Kerberos password.

To configure a realm to use a Windows logon

  1. Log on to a Windows domain.

  2. Start Kerberos Manager.

  3. From the Configuration menu, choose Configure Realms.

  4. From the Configuration tab, select a realm from the Realm list, and then click Properties.

  5. On the KDC tab, select Use Windows logon credentials, and then click OK.

    The required fields complete automatically using your existing credentials.
