Central Administration asks for credentials on admin machine !!

Hi,

Did you ever faced issue/scenario when SharePoint 2010 Central Administration prompts for Credentials.
I stumbled across a quirky authentication issue when we enabled Kerberos on our Central Administration Web Applications for SharePoint 2010. Every time we launched Central Administration using the link provided on the start menu we would be prompted for credential entry..! even though i am on admin machine running Central admin as run as administrator.!!

Sometime its annoying while going on to SharePoint 2010 server and opening up central administration and again it asks for username & password..!

I did a trick on IE and i able to solve the issue. here it is:
Open Internet Explore. Go to  Internet Options -> Security -> Local Intranet -> Sites -> Advanced 
and add your central admin url. thats it!! Now it wont asks for password again..!
