    Hello Team .

    file admin-cust.xml which is needed to allow Kerberos on IBM i inavigator .

    To modify that file we use below script where we key in the baseDN value . Here we can not have more than one OU(Organisation unit ) . I have opened the case with IBM ,they informed to open up Idea to enable multiple OU (Organisation unit ).


    cd /qibm/proddata/os400/navigator

    configureNav.sh

    Please input the Kerberos information!

    baseDN: -->

    OU=Cognizant,OU=GannettUsers,DC=us,DC=ad,DC=gannett,DC=com


    Since My user account has OU -->Cognizant , many user will have their different OU depends on their location/role.

    We are not clear on exactly what support you are asking for. What interface would need changing? An example of how the change would be used, with the expected interface change would be helpful.
