    ktpass necessary

    RobMokkink Expert

       

      I use ad authentication on the vMA. The sudoers file is modified so a particular AD group can perform sudo actions. We don't want to use the vi-admin unless necessary.

       

       

      On the ESXi severs Ad authentication is configured etc.

      I created a service account with the necessary rights on all the ESXi servers and vCenter.

       

       

      When we add servers to the vMA i specify the domain service account.

       

       

      Administrative tasks are all performed with our own accounts and not with vi-admin account.

       

       

      Is it still necessary to renew the kerberos tickets then? Or can i forget the service account completely?

       

       

      Thanks in advance.
