Ktpass is a Microsoft program that creates the encryption keys that the KDC uses to negotiate KRB5 or SPNEGO logon transactions between a Teradata Database or Unity server, and the networked clients.

Run ktpass once on the KDC for each Teradata Database node and Unity server SPN that you created in Determining the SPN for Each Node and Unity Server. Note that the procedure for the first database node is different from the procedure for all other nodes.

After creating the keys, you must copy a set of keytab files for each KDC to each Teradata Database system and Unity server. See Installing the Kerberos Keys.
