We are trying to set up AD authentication inside our SAP BI Launch Pad. I have been following the Crystal-2011-AD-Authentica
tion.pdf instructions and they have been very helpful. I've successfully completed the following:
Created a service account in AD with the appropriate permissions and with Kerberos authentication turned on.
Configured the AD Plugin Page in the CMC and successfully mapped the AD groups/aliases
Successfully started the SIA/CMS under the new AD service account
Successfully verified that the new service account and AD logins are working
Created the bscLogin.conf and krb5.ini files and successfully received a kerberos ticket
Enabled the authentication dropdown for BI Launch Pad
Pointed the app server to the bscLogin.conf and krb5ini files
After all that, I do not see any events in the server logs at all relating to user logon attempts and I get the following error when attempting to login to the BI Launch Pad with AD user credentials:
Account Information Not Recognized: Active Directory Authentication failed to log you on. Please contact your system administrator to make sure you are a member of a valid mapped group and try again. If you are not a member of the default domain, enter your user name as UserName@DNS_DomainName, and then try again. (FWM 00006)
This is where I'm stuck and cannot tell what the problem is.
