What is SPN

Hello All,

Hope this post finds you in good health and spirit.

A Service Principal Name (SPN) is a name in Active Directory and it is a unique identifier for a service on a network that uses Kerberos authentication. In Simple, SPN is like an alias for an AD object, which can be a Service Account, User Account or Computer object, that lets other AD resources know which services are running under which accounts and creates associations between them in Active Directory.

View SPNs in Active Directory

To be able to see the SPNs using Active Directory Users and Computers, you need to haveย Advanced Featuresย enabled in the console by going to theย Viewย menu. After enabling it, go to the desired AD object, chooseย Propertiesย and go to theย Attribute Editorย tab:

The other way is to use theย setspn โ€“lย in a command prompt to view the SPNs for that specific object.

So, thatโ€™s all in this blog. I will meet you soon with next stuff .Have a nice day !!!
