Adding a Kerberos server to a realm

You can add a Kerberos server to a realm using network authentication service. Before you add the Kerberos server to the realm, you need to know the name and the port on which it listens.

To add a key distribution center to a realm, complete these steps:

  1. In IBM® Navigator for i, expand IBM i Management > Security > All Tasks > Network Authentication Service.
  2. Click Realm.
  3. Right-click the name of the realm in the right pane and select Properties.
  4. On the General tab, enter the name of the Kerberos server that you want to add to this realm in the KDC field. The Kerberos server is required for all realms.
    For example, might be a valid entry.
  5. Enter the port number on which the Kerberos server listens for requests. A valid port number can be 1-65535. The default port for the Kerberos server is 88.
  6. Click Add. The new Kerberos server will appear in the Key Distribution Center (KDC) for this realm list.
  7. Click OK.
