I have blogged previously about setting up service principal names for your architecture. To make it really easy to form a perfect SETSPN statement first time and every time, I put together this little spreadsheet that will build the statements for you. It will also help you plan your installation architecture and service accounts.

All you need to do is to carefully fill in all the fields that appear in yellow and your SPN statements will be done. Just make sure you copy both NetBIOS based and FQDN based columns to a batch file and run it as domain admin.

This spreadsheet was a result of many hours of research, so if you feel that it helped you save time and money, please donate any amount you see fit using the button on the right. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have on it, please feel free to comment.

I provide the spreadsheet on “as is” basis and reserve the right to withdraw it at any time. You are free to use it in any way you like, but not distribute it or any part of it without my explicit written permission.

You can download the spreadheet from here. Please leave comment to this post if you found it helpful or indeed otherwise.
