Workspace WebSphere Liberty
Created by Guest
Created on Jan 9, 2018

SPNEGO / Kerberos across multiple Liberty instances

Our environment is working this way:
There are several different host server (Windows) which are hosting the applications:
Host A (JTS, RDNG, RQM), Host B (RTC), Host C (JTS_Lic, Licenses, JRS, DW, ..)

All applications are running in different profiles, which means Host A is running with currently 3 different profiles.
On JTS hosted on HOST A multiple applications are registered (RDNG, RQM, RTC, JRS, DW) which are located on 3 different servers in total and running on 6 different profiles.
What we want to achieve is that using SPNEGO / Kerberos you do not need to type in your username / password for any of those applications.
This behaviour is possible using WAS.

Currently we are not able to get it running using WebSphere Liberty.
The last working configuration is that SPNEGO / Kerberos is running only for JTS application.

From the PMR it sounds that this is the current behaviour liberty is supporting but we need the support across multiple WebSphere Liberty Instances.

Please go ahead and implement it.
