Teradata Vantage™

Use the ktpass command to create the key for the first Teradata Vantage node in a system. The keytab file is created in the directory from which the command is issued unless you use -out keytab_filename to specify another location.

spn
The SPN for a Teradata Vantage node as defined in Determining the SPN for Each Node.
node_name
The name of a Teradata Vantage node created in step 4 of Creating an Active Directory User for Each Node.
password
The password for the user represented by the node. Use the password assigned to the name in step 6 of Creating an Active Directory User for Each Node.
KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL
The principal name type.
The example value, KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL, is the same for all systems.
Specify the -ptype exactly as shown for all Kerberos setups.
keytab_filename
The name of the keytab file to which the keys are written, for example, domain_name.sys_name.keytab, where:
  • domain_name is included to differentiate among the separate keytab files required for multiple domains, if present.
  • sys_name names of a Teradata Vantage system in the domain.
    If the Active Directory KDC serves more than one Vantage system, you must create a keytab file for each one using a unique sys_name.
