SNC (SSO) while creating universe in designer


I have configured SNC successfully through kerberos file. So I am able to achieve below menitoned activities specifically in BOBJE server (where BOBJE services installed).

1 I am able to log on to SAP front end using kerberos authentication (which is irrelavant for BOBJE SNC)

2 able to import roles and users (due to client side SNC)

3able to create universe connection using SSO option and test connection is successful.

4 able to create universe with connection having SSO connection parameters

5 have created web intelligence report using Webi Rich client and report refreshed successfully.

6 Report exported to Repository and viewed and refreshed successfully in web.

This is been tested for 2 Windows AD users which are integrated with Sap users usin SNC in BOBJE Server, while working on Designer and webi rich client.

Now in the client machine where only client tools installed, I have configured SAP front end authentication using kerberos, which is also a crypto library file for BOBJE SNC. I tried below activities

1 I am able to log on to SAP front end using kerberos authentication

2 Test connection in designer failed which uses SNC

3 Reports failed to refresh in Webi Rich client

But in Infoview reports are viewed and refreshed successfully since it uses the SNC library installed in BOBJE server.

In this scenario, how we can allow universe developers and report designers to work on universes and report using SSO. Or does this mean universe connection needs to be modified once the development is completed to support SSO.
