Unable to login into repository from IDT Tool using Windows AD

Hi,

We have created Windows AD Authentication on our BO4.1 SP4 server. i can login into CMC (http://<servername>/BOE/CMC/) and BI Launch Pad(http://<servername>/BOE/BI/) using my windows AD successfully. But when i create a 'New Session' from Information Design tool to connect to the Repository using my Windows AD authentication, it throws error 'Connection Failed: Active Directory Authentication Failed to log you on..........' . is there any setup which i should do ?? Also, i can login with my administrator credentials without any error.

Thank You.

    Yes,

    only on IDT and rich client you need to change some configuration files.

    see this on IDT and rich client part:

    1. Edit the file: install_dir\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\InformationDesignTool.ini.
    2. Add the following lines to the end of the file:
      -Djava.security.auth.login.config=path-to-bsclogin/bscLogin.conf
      -Djava.security.krb5.conf=path-to-kerberos/krb5.ini
    3. Copy the two files bscLogin.conf and krb5.ini from the server or the other Working Client Machine.
    4. Now try login to IDT with AD Authentication.
