1826673 - How to configure LDAP kerberos SSO to HANA DB


NOTE: This configuration was used in BI 4.0 when 1st connecting to HANA, since that time SAML is now the preferred method for SSO between BI and HANA see KBA 1900023

  • BI to be on SUSE 11 linux (same as hana in order for this solution to work)
  • Windows AD 2003 or 2008 Domain Controllers
  • Hana Database integrated with Active Directory
