KB-2567: Does Centrify have solution to enable AD based SSO to SAP?

Does Centrify have solutions to enable AD based user SSO to SAP?


Centrify has had a SSO solution for SAP ABAP servers on *NIX to provide SAPgui users AD based SSO for many years. Currently this solution is for SAP app servers running on *NIX only. SAP ABAP servers on Windows provide a solution, out of the box with no additional software required, to support SAPgui connecting to SAP ABAP on Windows. 

For SAP servers running on *NIX, you will need a 3rd party solution like Centrify.

When we released support for SAP Netweaver AS Java, we included support for SAP Java-based app servers running on *NIX as well as on Windows OS. 
With this solution, AD users can be configured to SSO to SAP Java-based app transparently whether the SAP NW AS Java runs from Windows machine or from a *NIX machine.
