A. SAPgui and Kerberos Tickets
MacOS Sierra (version 10.12) is the thirteenth major release of macOS (previously Mac OS X from 2001 to 2012 and OS X from 2012 to 2016), Apple Inc.' S desktop and server operating system for Macintosh.It was the first version of the operating system issued under the June 2016 rebranding as macOS. Sierra is named after the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California and Nevada.
Acquire Kerberos tickets. Tickets are required to connect to SAP systems
- SAPgui may bring up the Ticket Viewer to prompt you to obtain Kerberos tickets. If not:
- You may see an error mentioning 'GSS-API'
- SAPgui may stall at 'Connecting...'
- Your SAPgui session may freeze.
All of these behaviors mean that either you do not have Kerberos tickets, or your Kerberos tickets have expired. To resolve that issue, use the instruction below to get tickets manually.
- How to get Kerberos tickets manually
- Launch Kerberos Ticket Viewer (/Applications/Utilities/Ticket Viewer). On Mac OS Catalina it is located in (/System/Library/CoreServices/Applications)
- Enter your Kerberos username (the first part of your @mit.edu email address), and your Kerberos password (the password used to check your @mit.edu email).
- If You cannot find the Ticket Viewer app (Catalina OS) then (re)install the Java JDK, reboot and it should show up.
NOTE: Your Kerberos tickets will last for 10 hours only, and have to be manually renewed if you wish to remain in SAP longer. If you do wish to remain in SAP longer than 10 hours, it's a good idea to renew them at least 20 minutes or so before they expire.
- Music, TV, and podcasts take center stage. ITunes forever changed the way people experienced.
- If you have not yet installed Apple's Java OS X 2012-006 update, then you are still using a version of Apple Java 6 that includes the plug-in and the Java Preferences app. See 'Note for Users of OS X that Include Apple Java 6 Plug-in'. There can be multiple JDKs installed on a system, as many as you wish.
