Kerberos SSO configuration

Hi guys. I'm trying to set up Kerberos + SSO on alfresco 5.2 server based on this tutorial https://hub.alfresco.com/t5/alfresco-content-services-hub/configuring-the-cifs-and-web-servers-for-k....
But I'm getting
ERROR [org.alfresco.web.site.servlet.SSOAuthenticationFilter] [localhost-startStop-1] HTTP Kerberos web filter error
javax.security.auth.login.LoginException: Unable to obtain password from user

Any 

I've created AD users myalfcifs and myalfhttp and enabled Do not require Kerberos preauthentication options in the Account Options. Created key tables with
ktpass -princ cifs/alfresco.mycomp.com@MYCOMP.COM -pass D password1 -mapuser mycomp\myalfcifs -crypto all -ptype KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL -out c:\temp\myalfcifs .keytab -kvno 0
and
ktpass -princ HTTP/alfresco.mycomp.com@MYCOMP.COM -pass D password2 -mapuser mycomp\myalfhttp -crypto all -ptype KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL -out c:\temp\myalfhttp .keytab -kvno 0
Created SPN
setspn -a cifs/alfresco myalfcifs
setspn -a cifs/alfresco myalfhttp

I'm not sure whether I should my username myalfcifs/http instead of AlfrescoCIFS/HTTP to in java.login.config (tried both ways with no difference)

AlfrescoCIFS {
com.sun.security.auth.module.Krb5LoginModule required
storeKey=true
useKeyTab=true
keyTab="/etc/keys/myalfcifs.keytab"
principal="cifs/alfresco.mycomp.com";
};
