AD authentication for BI4.0 on NW7.3x portal


Hi Team BI

I have been asked to configure AD authentication, following Steve Fredell's "Configure Active Directory Manual Authentication and SSO for BI4" I could successfully get AD authentication working fine with tomcat 😊

However when I use the same BOE/CMC with imported early into portal I get the error:

Account Information Not Recognized: Active Directory Authentication failed to log you on. Please contact your system administrator to make sure you are a member of a valid mapped group and try again. If you are not a member of the default domain, enter your user name as UserName@DNS_DomainName, and then try again. (FWM 00006)

So tomcat obviously understands the kerberos authentication, I have made sure the same server principle name and AD administrator credentials are the same, is in use by tomcat and portal both use SAPService<SID>

Any tips as to what I need to do to get Windows AD authentication working to BOE/CMC from a NW7.3 portal? Do I need to re-import the BOE deployment?
