HPC 2016 REST API Authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Till 20012 R2 there was a command line argument by which we can specify NTLM as the method of authentication but from 2016, the parameter has been removed while installing the web pack. Is there any way we can configure it to accept NTLM authentication. In 2016 our http requests are failing withr esponse  401 – Unauthorised, WWW-authentication is being shown as Basic in response.  Powershell commands for 2012 and 2016 are given below:

    Till HPC 2012 R2 : .\Set-HPCWebComponents.ps1 -Service REST -enable –AuthenticationMethod NTLM –certificate <CertThumbprint> -Port <PortNumber> In 2016 : .\Set-HPCWebPortal.ps1 –enable
