Issue/Introduction

Kerberos is an authentication mechanism used to allow access to NFS file shares.The  NFS Client can specify the mount type and kerberos protocol to be used while mounting the NFS share on the client system. 

Could you please tell me if XCOM 11.6 can use Kerberos (NFS4)? Requesting information about XCOM for Windows and Linux.

Environment

Release:
Component: XCLX86

Resolution

From XCOM's point of view, As long as all files are accessible and have read/write access to the file system, transfers will work fine. 

Though we have not tested with NFS shares with the Kerberos security protocol in our environment, we expect that transfers will work fine without any problem once shares are configured properly.
