How to ensure Kerberos authentication for SharePoint 2016 is working properly?

HTTP headers show that Kerberos is used, but klist did not show ticket for SharePoint site. What does it mean?


Kerberos for SharePoint 2016 is configured with this blog SharePoint 2013/2016 Kerberos Authentication.

If open SharePoint site with IE Fiddler show this headers

IE did not prompt authentication window, authentication is automatic as expected. But klist didn't show ticket for SharePoint web

p.s. I am trying to find a problem with delegation when custom SharePoint-hosted svc service call Exchange EWS. And need to be sure Kerberos on SharePoint is working properly.

This is an old post, but I will post it here so others and myself could check this Kerberos authentication setting.

According to MSDN, you could check Kerberos login from application server (or whatever server that the client requested) event viewer (Security). I found another blog that also mention how to check Kerberos working.

If client successfully authenticate using Kerberos it will show

Logon Process: Kerberos
Authentication Package: Kerberos

Event Viewer

In KList command it will also display Kerberos, like this picture.
