Enabling Kerberos on Informatica Nodes

Enabling Kerberos on Informatica Nodes

After you enable Kerberos in the domain, you must copy the Kerberos configuration file to each node in the domain. You must also configure web browsers to access the Informatica web applications.
Copy the keytab files to the following directory on each node:
<Informatica installation directory>\isp\config\keys
The keytab files you copy depends on whether you enable Kerberos authentication at the node level or at the process level.

Keytab Files at Node Level

Copy each keytab file generated at the node level to the corresponding node.
The following table shows the node to which to copy each keytab file:
Keytab File
Location on Node
<node name>.keytab
Copy each file to the corresponding node.
webapp_http.keytab
Copy each file to the corresponding gateway node.
ldapuser.keytab
Copy the file to each gateway node.

Keytab Files at Process Level

Copy each keytab file generated at the process level to the corresponding node.
The following table shows the node to which to copy each keytab file:
Keytab File
Location on Node
<node name>.keytab
Copy each file to the corresponding node.
webapp_http.keytab
Copy each file to the corresponding gateway node.
_AdminConsole.keytab
Copy each file to the corresponding gateway node.
<application service name>.keytab
Copy each file to the corresponding node on which the Informatica application service runs.
ldapuser.keytab
Copy the file to each gateway node.

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.
