Public-Key authentication using Kerberos Protocol Transition in Windows 2008 R2?

We have had years of great success using VShell in a load balanced farm environment with home directories on a cluster resource. Previously all systems were Windows 2003. Naturally we are making the transition up in operating systems and building a Server 2008 VShell farm. Everything works except for logging in with public-key. We had followed all of the steps for Kerberos Protocol Transition as outlined at https://www.vandyke.com/products/vsh...Transition.htm (registry key on each VShell server set and each server granted delegation for cifs to the server hosting the home directories), just as we have on our previous farms. The only difference is the operating system of our VShell servers. Were changes made to how KPT works in 2008 R2?

Hello mrburch,

I can't speak for Microsoft, but the way VShell makes use of KPT has not changed.

Everything works except for logging in with public-key.
What sort of issues are you experiencing?

What version of VShell is installed?

Has the machine on which VShell is installed been restarted since VShell was installed? (This is required since the LSA Module is responsible for public-key authentication and it loads at boot time.)

The best way to troubleshoot this is to get a VShell debug log. Since this can contain sensitive data, please attach it to an email to support@vandyke.com and include "Attn Brenda - Forum Thread #11673" in the subject line.

If debug is not presently enabled, it can be enabled in the Common / Logging category of VShell's control panel.
