    How to disable kerberos in Vista

    I wanted to share my printer on network and therefore I opt for the same application that I use to print from other pc. So I have to check box with kerberos authentication on server setting but and if i choose another then I will have to disable it with cups.conf but I dont know how to do that. So can anyone please tell me how to disable kerberos in Vista? Thank you
    To the rational mind there can be no offense,
    no obscenity, no blasphemy,
    but only information of greater or lesser
    value.

    In order to stop a newly upgraded (2.6 --> 9) system from asking about Kerberos on bootup, mount the upgraded root filesystem on /a (or in the case of Live Upgrade, as /.alt.<BE-Name>). Then go to /a/etc/rc2.d and comment out the section at the bottom of S30sysid.net (make a copy first) that runs the kerberos setup:

    ## if [ -x /usr/sbin/sysidkrb5 ]
    ## then
    ## /usr/sbin/sysidkrb5
    ## fi

    This will skip asking about it. Once the system is up, you can run /usr/sbin/sysidkrb5 manually to set the policy. After that, you can put your original S30sysid.net back.

    Re: How to disable kerberos in Vista

    Sometimes you may need to temporarily disable Kerberos authentication and use NTLM instead, for example when you are trying to troubleshoot authentication issues with a server or network device. Here's a quick tip on how you can force your XP machine to use NTLM instead of Kerberos when authenticating with the server or device: use the IP address of the server or device instead of its Service Principal Name (SPN). For example, you could map a network drive to \\ and this will force NTLM instead of Kerberos to be used when authenticating the connection. For more information on SPNs, see http://technet2.microsoft.com/window....mspx?mfr=true.
