Creating a Kerberos login mapping

You can use Sybase Central to create a Kerberos login mapping, which configures an individual user for Kerberos authentication to the database server.


You must already have Kerberos configured before SQL Anywhere can use it. You must already have your SQL Anywhere database server and database configured to use Kerberos.

The database user and the Kerberos principal must already exist.

You must have the MANAGE ANY USER system privilege and either the SELECT ANY TABLE system privilege or the SELECT privilege on the SYSLOGINMAP system view.

If you need to change the login mode, you must also have the SET ANY SECURITY OPTION system privilege.

Context and remarks

A Kerberos login mapping is the connection between the user ID that logs in to the computer or network and the database user.

  1. Use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.

  2. In the left pane, right-click Login Mappings and click New » Login Mapping.

  3. Select Kerberos login mapping and click Next.

  4. In the Which Kerberos principal user will be connecting to the database field, type the name of the Kerberos principal for whom the Kerberos login is to be created.

  5. In the Which database user do you want to associate with the Kerberos principal list, select the database user ID this Kerberos principal maps to.

  6. Follow the remaining instructions in the Create Login Mapping Wizard.


A Kerberos login mapping is created.
