How to Configure the Service Principal Name
For the latest version of Commerce Server 2007 Help, see the Microsoft Web site.
Use the SetSPN.exe command-line tool to add a Service Principal Name (SPN) directory property for the Active Directory service account on the data tier domain controller. You use an SPN to locate a target principal name for running a service.
SetSPN.exe is a Microsoft Windows support tool that is located on the Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 CD. For more information about how to use SetSPN.exe, see http://g o .microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=71820.

<path> setspn.exe -A MSSQLSvc/StagingSQL.Domain2.corp.com:1433 runtimeuser if SQL Cluster <path> setspn.exe -A MSSQLSvc/SQLVRTL.Domain2.corp.com:1433 runtimeuser
where <path> is the drive and location of the SetSPN.exe file.
To verify that the SPN is set, type the following at the command prompt:
Setspn -L runtimeuser
