When running these commands is the "targetservername" the name of the server set inside of Access Connect?

- setspn -a afpserver/servername.company.com targetservername 
- setspn -a afpserver/servername targetservername

Hi,

setspn is not the part of Access Connect. However, you may require to run these commands if you are going to use Kerberos logons which provides support for single sign-on to your network resources. For the Mac to get a Kerberos ticket via AFP you need both a long and a short SPN. You can use the setspn command with the "-l" switch to list:

You should see two lines for "afpserver/" (long and short):
- afpserver/servername.company.com
- afpserver/servername

Please refer to the Microsoft KB for more details about the syntax (see: "Adding SPNs").

Thanks!

I need to use kerberos, thus the reason I asked this question. You're answer is a direct copy and paste out of the documentation I've already found which doesn't answer the question I asked.

I have my Macs bound to my AD so I need them to use kerberos for Acronis so they don't have to authenticate everytime or clutter/confuse their keychain with unneeded passwords.
