NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     kadmin - Kerberos administration utility

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     kadmin  [-p  string  |  --principal=string]  [-K  string   |
            [-c   file   |   --config-file=file]   [-k   file   |
            [-r   realm   |    --realm=realm]    [-a    host    |
            [-s  port  number  | --server-port=port number] [-l |
            [-h | --help] [-v | --version] [command]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The kadmin program is used to make modifications to the Kerberos
     database,  either remotely via the kadmind(8) daemon, or locally (with the
     -l option).

     Supported options:

     -p string, --principal=string
             principal to authenticate as

     -K string, --keytab=string
             keytab for authentication principal

     -c file, --config-file=file
             location of config file

     -k file, --key-file=file
             location of master key file

     -r realm, --realm=realm
             realm to use

     -a host, --admin-server=host
             server to contact

     -s port number, --server-port=port number
             port to use

     -l, --local
             local admin mode

     If no command is given on  the  command  line,  kadmin  will
prompt for commands
 to process. Commands include:

           add [-r | --random-key] [--random-password] [-p string
           --password=string]                      [--key=string]
           [--expiration-time=time]   [--pw-expiration-time=time]

                 creates a new principal

           passwd  [-r  |  --random-key]  [--random-password] [-p
string |
           --password=string] [--key=string] principal...

                 changes the password of an existing principal

           delete principal...

                 removes a principal

           del_enctype principal enctypes...

                 removes some enctypes from a principal; this can
be useful if
                 the  service belonging to the principal is known
to not handle
                 certain enctypes

           ext_keytab [-k string | --keytab=string]  principal...

                 creates  a keytab with the keys of the specified

           get [-l |  --long]  [-s  |  --short]  [-t  |  --terse]

                 lists  the principals that match the expressions
(which are
                 shell glob like), long format gives more  information, and
                 terse just prints the names

           rename from to

                 renames a principal

           modify [-a attributes | --attributes=attributes]
           [--expiration-time=time] [--pw-expiration-time=time]
           [--kvno=number] principal

                 modifies certain attributes of a principal


                 lists the operations you are allowed to perform

     When running in local mode, the following commands can  also
be used:

           dump [-d | --decrypt] [dump-file]

                 writes  the  database in ``human readable'' form
to the specified
 file, or standard out

           init [--realm-max-ticket-life=string]
           [--realm-max-renewable-life=string] realm

                 initializes the Kerberos database  with  entries
for a new
                 realm. It's possible to have more than one realm
served by
                 one server

           load file

                 reads a previously dumped database, and  re-creates that
                 database from scratch

           merge file

                 similar  to  list but just modifies the database
with the entries
 in the dump file
