Use the kinit utility to verify the Teradata Vantage system user in the directory can authenticate to the KDC. For example, for a Vantage node user:

  1. From the command prompt, run the kinit utility:
    node_name: >kinit  domain_username
    Password for  domain_username@KERBEROS_REALM: password
  2. From the command prompt, run klist to see if a ticket was issued:
    node_name:>klist -c

    The output is similar to:

    Ticket cache: File:/temp/krb5cc_0
    Default principal:node_name@KERBEROS_REALM 
    
    Valid starting    Expires    Service Principal
    09/20/20 11:47:23 09/20/21 21:48:04 krbtgt/KERBEROS_REALM@KERBEROS_REALM
         renew until 9/21/21 11:47:23
    Kerberos 4 ticket cache: /tmp/tkt()
    klist: You have no tickets cached
