Use the kinit utility to verify that the Teradata Vantage system or Unity server user in the directory can authenticate to the KDC. For example, for a Vantage node user:
- From the command prompt, run the kinit utility:
node_name: >kinit domain_username Password for domain_username@KERBEROS_REALM: <enter password>
- From the command prompt, run klist to see if a ticket was issued:
The output is similar to:
Ticket cache: File:/temp/krb5cc_0 Default principal:node_name@KERBEROS_REALM Valid starting Expires Service Principal 09/20/06 11:47:23 09/20/06 21:48:04 krbtgt/KERBEROS_REALM@KERBEROS_REALM renew until 9/21/06 11:47:23 Kerberos 4 ticket cache: /tmp/tkt() klist: You have no tickets cached
Testing directory communication with a Unity server is similar.
