Note: Kerberos Extras has been updated to add compatibility for Lion and Mountain Lion. If your instance of Kerberos Extras was installed before October 1, 2011, please install Kerberos Extras again.
Launch Ticket Viewer.app.
Note: Kerberos Extras will place a shortcut for Ticket View.app in the Dock. If the shortcut has been removed, navigate to /Applications/Utilities and launch the application from there.
From the Ticket Viewer window, select the button labeled Add Identity.
Enter your Kerberos username and password when prompted and press the button labeled Continue.
Optional: You can select the checkbox for Remember password in my keychain if you would rather skip this step in the future.
You will now have a valid Ticket Granting Ticket (TGT) listed in Ticket Viewer.
You will now be able to run Kerberos-based applications (SAPgui, etc).
To destroy Kerberos tickets after a session, simply launch Ticket View.app, select the tickets to be deleted by clicking the x, and then select Remove Identity.
Note: The Kerberos ticket listed in Ticket Viewer has an expiration date. After this date and time (or if a user logs out/shuts down the computer), a new Kerberos ticket must be acquired to use Kerberos-based applications. Mac OS X will not automatically prompt users to acquire Kerberos tickets; Apple has removed this logic from Mac OS X 10.7 and later.
