3445186 - Implementing Kerberos Authentication for HANA Smart Data Access Utilizing Active Directory Accounts


When using HANA Smart Data Access (SDA) with a User ID/password for remote database access, you may encounter a need for Active Directory (AD) accounts for authentication. This is often due to security standards that require the use of domain AD accounts for authentication towards HANA, rather than local SQL authentication. 

While it is suggested that this should work via Kerberos (as per the SAP HANA Spark Controller documentation and SAP Note 1837331 - HowTo configure Kerberos SSO to SAP HANA DB using Microsoft Windows Active Directory), you may find that a local DB user is being used instead of a domain AD account.
