System administrators can configure the Reflection Kerberos client on other computers by including Kerberos configuration settings in a custom installation.

To deploy Kerberos settings

  1. Install Reflection (including Kerberos Manager).
  2. Start Kerberos Manager and configure the settings you want to export.
  3. Choose Tools > Export Settings > As Configuration File.
  4. (Optional) Clear Allow Configuration to disable the Configure Realms and Export Settings commands on the end-users' PCs.
  5. Save the file to a location you can easily find, such as the desktop, and then click OK.
  6. Create an administrative installation of Reflection (or use an existing one).
  7. From a command line, open the Attachmate Customization Tool:

    path_to_setup\setup.exe /admin

  8. From the Select Customization dialog box, select Create a new Companion installer (or open an existing MSI), and then click OK.
  9. From the navigation pane, select Specify install locations.
  10. Under Installation type, specify either Installs to all users of a machine or Installs only for the user who installs it.
  11. From the navigation pane, select Add files.
  12. Browse to select the Kerberos configuration file.
  13. Under Add files to, specify one of the following locations:

    To install Kerberos settings

    Specify this location

    For all users of the computer

    [CommonAppDataFolder]\Attachmate
    \Reflection

    Only for the user who installs this package

    [AppDataFolder]\Attachmate\
    Reflection

  14. Click File > Save As and enter a name for your installer file (for example, KerberosSettings.msi)

    When the configuration file is installed correctly, the Reflection Kerberos client is configured automatically the first time the user uses Kerberos.
