Steps to reproduce

Reduced Steps:

  1. From a REDMOND domain joined session, go to https://ieta-web-linux/ldap/

Expected Result: The page with the following text is displayed:
Authorization Required
This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn’t understand how to supply the credentials required.

Actual Result: The default “The page can’t be displayed” error page is displayed by IE.

Repro Steps:

Steps to reproduce the problem:

  1. Server Ubuntu 12.04.3, Apache 2.2.22, mod_auth_kerb, mod_authnz_ldap
  1. Linux joins the domain and sets up standard keytab and kerberos config
  1. Configure apache authentication using Kerberos Authentication and LDAP Authorization via group.
