Error Message for Service Keytab File

Error Message for Service Keytab File

The Informatica Services installer displays the wrong error message when the keytab file for an application service is not valid.
The installer displays the wrong error message when you install Informatica with following options:
  • A domain that uses Kerberos authentication
  • Service principal names (SPN) and keytab files at process level
  • Configuration of Model Repository Service and Data Integration Service
When the installer creates the application services, it validates the SPN and keytab files for the services. If the service keytab file is not valid, the installer displays the following error message about the node keytab file:
Error !!! The node keytab file ...is not valid. Verify the location of the node keytab file and specify the correct directory.
The error message is not correct. The node keytab file is valid but the application service keytab file is not valid.
