Prerequisites for Microsoft Dynamics CRM

During installation of the On-Premise Connector, the following policy files required for Kerberos authentication are installed in the \jre\lib\security subdirectory of your product installation directory:
*krb5.conf is a Kerberos configuration file containing values for the Kerberos realm and the KDC name for that realm. You must modify the generic file that is installed to contain your Kerberos realm name and the KDC name for that Kerberos realm by editing the file with a text editor or by specifying the system properties, java.security.krb5.realm and java.security.krb5.kdc.
*JDBCDriverLogin.conf file is a configuration file that specifies which Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) login module to use for Kerberos authentication. This file loads automatically unless the java.security.auth.login.config system property is set to load another login configuration file. You can edit this file, but the On-Premise Connector must be able to find the JDBC_DRIVER_01 entry to configure the JAAS login module. Refer to your J2SE documentation for information about setting options in this file.
Note: After installation, you must download the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files for JDK/JRE 7 at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jce-7-download-432124.html. Unzip the files into the \jre\lib\security subdirectory of your product installation directory.
