Configuring the encryption types for trusted domains

Inter-realm keys for the AES256-CTS and AES128-CTS encryption types must be established between any trusted domains to enable Active Directory users from these domains to log on to the joined computer. You can use the ksetup utility, installed by default on the domain controller, to set up the inter-realm keys.

To configure the inter-realm keys

  1. On the domain controller, open a Command Prompt window.
  2. Type the following commands:

    C:\>ksetup.exe /SetEncTypeAttr trustedDomain AES256-CTS-HMAC-SHA1-96
    C:\>ksetup.exe /SetEncTypeAttr trustedDomain AES128-CTS-HMAC-SHA1-96

    Note:   If you are using pre-validated Active Directory users, you must enable these users for Kerberos AES 128- and 256-bit encryption. You can do so by editing user accounts in Active Directory or by setting attributes for the users in ADSI Edit. For more information, see Enabling required encryption types for pre-validated users.
