Enable Kerberos Authentication for Informatica Clients

Enable Kerberos Authentication for Informatica Clients

Copy the Kerberos configuration file to each computer that hosts an Informatica client, and then set an environment variable to point to the configuration file. You must also enable client browsers to access the Informatica web applications.
After you configure the Informatica domain to run with Kerberos authentication, perform the following tasks on the Informatica client tools:
Copy the Kerberos configuration file to each Informatica client host.
Copy the krb5.conf file to each computer that hosts a Informatica client such as the PowerCenter Client or Informatica Developer (the Developer tool). Copy the file to the following directory on each host:
<Informatica installation directory>\clients\shared\security
Set the KRB5_CONFIG environment variable on each Informatica client host.
Set the KRB5_CONFIG environment variable to the path and file name of the Kerberos configuration file on each computer that hosts Informatica clients such as the PowerCenter Client and the Developer tool.
Configure web browsers to access Informatica web applications.
In Microsoft Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, add the URL of the Informatica web applications, such as the Analyst tool, to the list of trusted sites.
If you are using Chrome version 41 or later, you must also set the AuthServerWhitelist and AuthNegotiateDelegateWhitelist policies.
