Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Kerberos SSO is configured successfully with Weblogic Server.

We were forced to change the password for Kerberos Active Directory principal account.

To do this, we recreated the keytab file using the same user with the new password and replaced the existing keytab file with the new one.

However, this did not work and when we tried to authenticate, we received a 401-unauthorized error.

Following errors were seen in the logs :


 Changed the password for Kerberos Active Directory principal account.
