Adding a Server User for Kerberos Single Signon

To add a server user:

  1. On a Windows 2003 domain controller, select Start, Control Panels, Administrative Tools, Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. From the menu bar, select Action, New, User.

  3. Enter values in the Full name and User logon name fields. You should use your own internal naming conventions. For example,

    Full name: Kerberos Server

    User logon name: krbsrv

    Note: The First name, Last name, and Initials fields are not important, but you must specify the Full name and User logon name. Kerberos authentication uses the User logon name only.

  4. Click Next.
