Many enterprises require that all of their connections to different databases be authenticated via a Kerberos ticket. This applies to all JDBC-type connections including both BA and DI Repository connections (hibernate, quartz, and jackrabbit); solution connections, which are configured in the context.xml through the manage datasources in the Pentaho User Console (PUC); and in a job or transformation.

Keep these Pentaho Architecture principles in mind while you are working through this document:

  1. Architecture is important, above all else.
  2. Platforms are always evolving: sometimes you will have to think creatively.

Some of the things discussed here include Windows authentication, Kerberos, Microsoft SQL Server, Linux, kinit, klist, Pentaho BA and DI Server.
