With Enterprise Identity Mapping (EIM) and Kerberos, Windows clients can authenticate to IBMi without supplying a user and password. When the client connects, it supplies IBMi with a Kerberos ticket for authentication.
A Kerberos ticket has a fixed lifespan (the default for Windows Active Directory is 10 hours). After the Kerberos ticket expires, the Windows client requests a new ticket from Active Directory. IBMi does not request a new ticket from the Windows client. IBMi should request the updated ticket.
Like most IBMi shops, we run also run Windows servers. We use the QNTC file system to access files on Windows shares. This works fine with Kerberos until the ticket expires. At that point, the QNTC requests are rejected and errors are generated. This causes outages within the apps that rely on QTNC. If IBMi requested a new ticket, the apps would continue working and the users wouldn't experience app outages.
