Deploy Kerberos Settings with a Companion Installer

System administrators can configure the Kerberos client on other computers by including Kerberos configuration settings in a custom installation.

To deploy Kerberos settings

  1. Install your Micro Focus product (including Kerberos Manager).

  2. Start Kerberos Manager and configure the settings you want to export.

  3. Choose Tools > Export Settings > As Configuration File.

  4. (Optional) Clear Allow Configuration to disable the Configure Realmsand Export Settingscommands on the end-users' PCs.

  5. Save the file to a location you can easily find, such as the desktop, and then click OK.

  6. Create an administrative installation of your Micro Focus product (or use an existing one).

  7. From your administrative installation point, open the Installation Customization Tool from a shortcut or by typing the following command line:

    <path_to_setup>\setup.exe /admin

  8. From the Select Customization dialog box, select Create a new Companion installer (or open an existing MSI), and then click OK.

  9. From the navigation pane, select Specify install locations.

  10. Under Installation type, specify either Installs to all users of a machine or Installs only for the user who installs it.

  11. From the navigation pane, select Add files.

  12. Browse to select the Kerberos configuration file.

  13. Under Add files to, specify one of the following locations:

    Specify this location

    For all users of the computer

    [CommonAppDataFolder]\Micro Focusyour-product

    Only for the user who installs this package

    [AppDataFolder]\Micro Focusyour-product

  14. Click File > Save As and enter a name for your installer file (for example, KerberosSettings.msi)

  15. Install this package with your Micro Focus product.

    When the configuration file is installed correctly, the Kerberos client is configured automatically the first time the user uses Kerberos.
