Enable Kerberos With Workspace & Weblogic 9.2 MP3 & Apache

At last after long trouble….I made it…..
Yes I now have a working Kerberos implementation with Workspace and Weblogic 9.2….

So I just I’ll create something on the same and post it so that it is helpful for others. So i created a step by step guide for everyone.

Enable Kerberos With Workspace                                                                                      

I had problems when i tried to implement it. So my tips.

Configure Workspace.
Then perform the steps for settrustedpassword and workspace SSO enabling through CMC.
After that perform the steps required for custom policy creation for “workspace” deployment.

Another area pain area was the Active Directory Authenticator configuration.

By default User Name Attribute is configured as cn, where as for MSAD it should be sAMAccountName. So i used sAMAccountName and then when i logged in back, i couldnt find any of my MSAD users.

The trick is to cn in the User From Name filter to sAMAccountName.

If you face any problems, feel free to ask.

    I have installed Kerberos (SSO) with System on WebLogic 9.2 MP3. I think, I am almost there. Apart from the following challenge on the Workspace URL.

    "The server at WebLogic Server requires a username and password."

    "Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection)."

    It must be a configuration issue. Can you help me out?
