MOSS and Kerberos Deployment
During a recent POC, I was reminded (again) that the double-hop problem is a thorn in the side. For those living on another planet or a big rock and haven't heard or experieced the double-hop, basically this occurs when our SharePoint page (or Web parts on the page) attempts to access resources on a server different from the SharePoint Web server. In our scenario, we were utilizing Excel Services to present data contained inside a SQL Analysis Services cube. In order to do everything we needed to do, we had to configure Kerberos for the MOSS installation. Although it's not rocket science, it can be painful the first time through. I had done this a couple of times and had surprisingly written down some notes,...go figure...
Today I was browsing some blog posts and came across this 2-part description and thought I would share it.
