Domain Security Changes

Effective in version 9.6.0, mmcmd has the following changes related to domain security:
Environment Variables
You might have to configure environment variables to run mmcmd. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, you must set the KRB5_CONFIG environment variable on your system or in the mmcmd batch file. If secure communication is enabled for the domain, you must set the INFA_TRUSTSTORE and INFA_TRUSTSTORE_PASSWORD environment variables in the mmcmd batch file.
Previously, you did not have to configure environment variables for mmcmd.
