Configure Kerberos Environment Variables

Configure Kerberos Environment Variables

If you configure the Informatica domain to run on a network with Kerberos authentication, you must set the Kerberos configuration and credential cache environment variables.
Set the following environment variables:
KRB5_CONFIG
Use the KRB5_CONFIG environment variable to store the path and file name of the Kerberos configuration file. The name of the Kerberos configuration file is
krb5.conf
. You must set the KRB5_CONFIG environment variable on each node in the Informatica domain.
KRB5CCNAME
Set the KRB5CCNAME environment variable with the path and file name of the Kerberos user credential cache. Kerberos single sign-on requires Kerberos credential cache for user accounts.
When you cache the user credential, you must use the
forwardable
option. For example, if you use
kinit
to get and cache the user credential, you must use the
-f
option to request forwardable tickets.
