Abstract:
This session will walk-through all the steps required to configure single-sign-on from a Windows desktop client to an IBM Connections environment via SPNEGO. This is a prerequisite for configuring IBM Connections Mail (otherwise known as IBM Social Mail) when working with an Exchange e-mail environment.

I'll guide you step-by-step through the entire process - starting at creating a new WAS administrator (and explaining why that's necessary), generating a Kerberos keytab file and config generated, navigating each of the relevant sections in the WebSphere console and even setting up a fall-back option for clients who cannot authenticate via SPNEGO.

These skills should also be applicable to other applications built on IBM WebSphere Application Server, e.g. IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Sametime Meeting Server.
