Featured Presentation

Kerberos, SQL and You

Speaker: Adam Saxton, Sr. Escalation Engineer Microsoft CSS

Summary: Kerberos is a common pain point for customers and accounts for a large volume of calls to Customer Service and Support (CSS) at Microsoft. We will dive into how Kerberos works and how to configure it correctly for your deployment. Find out where that SPN goes and what the big deal is with delegation. This will use SharePoint, Reporting Services and SQL Server as examples, but the techniques can be applied to any product. There are also some common tools that will be demonstrated that you can use to pinpoint issues and correct them.
