NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     verify_krb5_conf - checks krb5.conf for obvious errors

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     verify_krb5_conf [config-file]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     verify_krb5_conf reads the configuration file krb5.conf,  or
the file given
  on  the  command  line, and parses it, thereby verifying
that the syntax
     is correct.

     If the file is syntactically correct, verify_krb5_conf tries
to verify
     that the contents of the file is of relevant nature.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Possible output from verify_krb5_conf include:

     <path>:   failed  to  parse  <something>  as  size/time/number/boolean
             Usually means that  <something>  is  misspelled,  or
that it contains
             weird    characters.    The    parsing    done    by
verify_krb5_conf is more
             strict than the one performed by libkrb5, so strings
that work in
             real life might be reported as bad.

     <path>: host not found (<hostname>)
             Means  that  <path>  is supposed to point to a host,
but it can't be
             recognised as one.

     <path>: unknown or wrong type
             Means that <path> is either a string when it  should
be a list,
             vice  versa,  or  just that verify_krb5_conf is confused.

     <path>: unknown entry
             Means that <string> is unknown to  verify_krb5_conf.

ENVIRONMENT    [Toc]    [Back]

     KRB5_CONFIG points to the configuration file to read.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     /etc/krb5.conf  Kerberos 5 configuration file

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]


BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Since each application can put almost anything in the config
file, it's
     hard to come up with a watertight verification process. Most
of the default
  settings  are  sanity checked, but this does not mean
that every
     problem is discovered, or that everything that  is  reported
as a possible
     problem  actually is one. This tool should thus be used with
some care.

     It should warn about obsolete data,  or  bad  practice,  but
