SAP Central Management Console and Windows AD Authentication

When changing Domain Controllers for a UMS/CMS server you need to modify the krb5.ini file. In our case that file was located in C:WinNT. Simply adding another kdc line, saving the file and restarting TomCat updates the system.

AD.ourdomain.COM = {
kdc = NewDCName.AD.ourdomain.COM
kdc = OldDCName.AD.
ourdomain.COM
default_domain = AD.
ourdomain.COM
}

Prior to this update, I was receiving this error:

Account Information Not Recognized: Active Directory Authentication
failed to log you on. Please contact your system administrator to make
sure you are a member of a valid mapped group and try again. If you are
not a member of the default domain, enter your user name as
[email protected]_DomainName, and then try again. (FWM 00006)

  1. I tried the same thing, but the authentication doesnt seem to work in InfoView. And the same error appears: “Account Information Not Recognized: Active Directory Authentication
    failed to log you on.”

    It appears to be accessing the new DC ok as refreshing seems to pull any new users into Crystal Reports ok and they show up in the users view.

    We’re moving from a 2003 DC to a 2008 DC. I suspect something with the 2008 64bit server.
