    Bladelogic Windows 2003 Active Directory Auth / Kerberos setup



      I am trying to setup BL to authenticate against a Windows 2003 AD. I have followed the instructions in the BladeLogic Administration Guide and it is all configured as per the instructions. However when I fire up the client on my workstation I get the following error:


      *GSSException: No valid credentials provided (Mechanism level: Attempt to obtain

      new INITIATE credentials failed! (null))


      Caused by: javax.security.auth.login.LoginException: Unable to obtain Princpal N

      ame for authentication*


      I am not sure what SPN it can't find? As far as I can tell everything is configured as per the guide. I assume the application service does not actually need to run as the service account created as part of the instructions (as it is not mentioned anywhere)


      Also when I run kilst tgt on the BL server it shows a TGT for my user, so I assume its getting part the way there?


      Any suggestions, comments or help would be gratefully accepted!
