Subject Using JMeter with Kerberos in Windows
Date Wed, 08 Oct 2014 02:54:06 GMT
Hi all,

I've only just subscribed so I hope this message is suitable!

I am attempting to run some performance testing against a Web Application
that we are running. The Web App uses Kerberos (my
understanding/familiarity with Kerberos is limited and I'm unable to access
the Domain Controller to check settings. It's all a bit difficult).

We have an account that can access the application ok but when I try and
use the same account through JMeter I can't get a request to work.

Our krb5.conf and jaas.conf files follow:


default_realm = TEST.NET
dns_lookup_kdc = true
dns_lookup_realm = true
udp_preference_limit = 1
        kdc = DC1.TEST.NET
        default_domain = TEST.NET
[domain_realm] = TEST = TEST


JMeter { required

I have an HTTP Authorization Manager in my JMeter test. It is configured to
have the following entries.

Base URL:
Username: ITAdmin
Password: <Password>
Domain: test
Mechanism: Kerberos

I have debugging turned on as you can see above and the debug information
is attached:

Debug is  true storeKey false useTicketCache false useKeyTab false
doNotPrompt false ticketCache is null isInitiator true KeyTab is null
refreshKrb5Config is false principal is null tryFirstPass is false
useFirstPass is false storePass is false clearPass is false
                [Krb5LoginModule] user entered username: ITAdmin
principal is ITAdmin@TEST.NET
Commit Succeeded

So I'm assuming that the account is being found ok. But the test then fails
and I receive the following output in the JMeter logging Window:

I'm at a bit of a loss. I dont have enough experience around Kerberos to be
able to work out if my krb5.conf file is incomplete. Any assistance would
be much appreciated!
