Hyper-V Live Migration:CredSSP RRS feed

  • credssp

    Hi folks,

    While configuring settings for Live Migrations in H-V there are 2 authentication options, one of them is CredSSP. There is pretty solid info about Kerberos, but I wonder why and when would you go for CredSsp?

    Any example. I understand that no further config is needed in this case. There is very little info about this bird.

    Thanks for your insights!

  • CredSSP works without any extra configuration steps, which makes it easier. You would prefer it when you don't have the authority to setup delegations. I don't know exactly where the line is drawn, but just having full control over the individual computer objects is not sufficient to set up delegation. CredSSP is also convenient when you have a one-off Live Migration that you'll do exactly one time, and don't want to go poking in AD just for that single event.

  • Hi,

    As you can see, using CredSSP authentication is the easiest option, but it requires you to log in locally to the Hyper-V host running the virtual machine that you want to live migrate. Kerberos offers better flexibility, but the use of constrained delegation is essential.

    CredSSP has a single hop limitation, meaning it is able to pass the administrator's credentials to a remote system, but the credentials cannot be passed any further. Kerberos does not have this limitation, meaning the administrator's credentials can be passed across multiple servers if necessary.

    • Kerberos lets you avoid having to sign in to the server, but requires constrained delegation to be set up. See below for instructions.

    • CredSSP lets you avoid configuring constrained delegation, but requires you sign in to the source server. You can do this through a local console session, a Remote Desktop session, or a remote Windows PowerShell session.

      CredSPP requires signing in for situations that might not be obvious. For example, if you sign in to TestServer01 to move a virtual machine to TestServer02, and then want to move the virtual machine back to TestServer01, you'll need to sign in to TestServer02 before you try to move the virtual machine back to TestServer01. If you don't do this, the authentication attempt fails, an error occurs, and the following message is displayed:

      "Virtual machine migration operation failed at migration Source. Failed to establish a connection with host computer name: No credentials are available in the security package 0x8009030E."
