We have a user that is working with postgres and greenplum and they said that pgadmin4 only allows one Kerberos Server Principal per pgAdmin instance because it takes the value of the environment variable PGKRBSRVNAME. Kerberos Server Principal value is the name of the user running Greenplum or Postgres database.
The user is trying to connect to multiple databases and they have different user names in the installation like gpadmin. pgqa pgprod, etc. So they can not connect to both from one PGADMIN because the environment variable would need to be reset when starting pgadmin. Is there a work around or is it possible that PGADMIN4 can be enhanced so that a field is added for Kerberos Server Principal name into the connection configuration form. The value of the field could be set to the connection property krbsrvname. Proposed change would allow to connect to multiple instance running under different userids from the same pgAdmin instance. Thanks for your feedback on the best way to move forward. Ivan -- Ivan Novick Pivotal Greenplum Product Lead https://www.youtube.com/GreenplumDatabase
