kinit fails in Powershell for Web Access Session

Does anyone know why running kinit in the Powershell for Web Access session returns this error?

kinit : kinit.exe: Inappropriate I/O control operation while getting initial credentials
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (kinit.exe: Inap…ial credentials:String) [], RemoteException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : NativeCommandError

It works if I run kinit on the server itself, just not in the PWA (or is it PWS?) session. This ticket is in a Linux Realm, not AD.


It’s PWA.

It’s probably because PWA establishes a Remoting session to the target machine, even if it’s the machine PWA is running on. By default, that doesn’t permit credentials to be give up to anything else.

Thanks Don, makes sense!
