IBM® InfoSphere® Business Glossary 9.1 uses the Simple and Protected GSS-API Notification (SPNEGO) support provided by WebSphere® Application Server to enable configuration of a seamless single sign-on environment for InfoSphere Business Glossary and InfoSphere Business Glossary Anywhere users. Deploying this feature requires correct configuration of several interlocking components, including some synchronization details that might not be immediately apparent. This article provides a step-by-step walkthrough of the configuration for a scenario that includes using a Microsoft™ Active Directory domain controller for the external user registry, Windows™ Server 2008 on the WebSphere Application Server tier and for the domain controller, and Windows 7 on the client tier. The article also includes troubleshooting tips and references for some common pitfalls.
