Kerberos security settings can lead to a failure to validate and create remote projects. This topic describes steps to identify
and amend security settings to enable validation and creation of remote projects.
Creating a project on a remote machine can fail to validate and hang due to the configuration of the Kerberos security settings.
To confirm that this is the issue, take the following steps:
- Start Eclipse using
eclipsec.exe located by default at
C:\Users\Public\Micro Focus\Product Name\eclipse.
Follow the steps for creating a remote project. Validation of a remote project occurs at the end of the project configuration
process. If the issue is cause by Kerberos security settings the following message will be displayed in the console used to
Kerberos Username [userid]
This displays a password prompt.
This allows the validation to proceed and the project is created successfully.
Once you have identified the issue using the method described above you can implement a workaround. This requires you to disable
the gssapi-with-mic authentication method in the
preferences. To do this:
Window > Preferences > General > Network Connections > SSH2.
- On the
Authentication Methods tab, uncheck
- Repeat the project creation process.
