    Unanswered: DB2 Linux Kerberos Authentication

    Linux 5.2 - DB2 V9.5 FP6a

    We have setup kerberos authentication on the server to get the Windows domain user to connect to the database and use it. All the Kerberos piece is setup and working.

    How can I give permission to a windows domain user to connect to database and use it ? Windows domain user is able to logon to linux server.

    All the instance cfg is setup.

    Server Connection Authentication (SRVCON_AUTH) = KERBEROS
    Client Kerberos Plugin (CLNT_KRB_PLUGIN) = IBMkrb5
    Database manager authentication (AUTHENTICATION) = SERVER

    I was trying to connect to the database using mixed case until I read here

    (joining linux in windows domain)

    that the domain name MUST be in caps when connecting to the database.

    db2 connect to SAMPLE user dbadmin@CF.IESECURITY.COM

    I could not put the "using" and the password due to the password starts with a special character & which results in error.

    I execute the above command and then put the password, it works.

    If I create the same domain user ID that is in Windows AD in DB2 (VIA Control Center), I can grant permissions to it. However, I could not get the groups work (Either AD domain groups or the AD domain users added to the local linux groups).
