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

Error Screen shot

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

Solution

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 :

-Djava.security.auth.login.config=C:\WINNT\bscLogin.conf

-Djava.security.krb5.conf=C:\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.

      This is a solution that I've used as well.  Keep in mind that every time you upgrade the Business Objects Client Tools on your desktop , you will need to update the ini for Information Design to include references to those two files.  Also, this same solution works for Windows AD SSO to Data Federator.
