Issue with accessing (logging into) the IDT using Windows AD based user Account.

I am getting the following error while trying to log in to IDT for the first time.

We need to configure the Information Design Tool (IDT) for manual AD Login + SSO for BI 4.0

Ø Go to your VM and Edit the file: install_dir\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\InformationDesignTool.ini.

Mostly it should be C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86

Ø Add the following lines to the end of the file and save the file :\WINNT\bscLogin.conf\WINNT\krb5.ini

Ø Unzip and place the attached  folder  under C: drive.

Ø Close the IDT application and try it again

The above suggestion is working for me.
