     kadmind — server for administrative access to Kerberos database

     kadmind [-c file | --config-file=file] [-k file | --key-file=file]
	     [--keytab=keytab] [-r realm | --realm=realm] [-d | --debug] [-p
	     port | --ports=port]

     kadmind listens for requests for changes to the Kerberos database and
     performs these, subject to permissions.  When starting, if stdin is a
     socket it assumes that it has been started by inetd(8), otherwise it
     behaves as a daemon, forking processes for each new connection. The
     --debug option causes kadmind to accept exactly one connection, which is
     useful for debugging.

     The kpasswdd(8) daemon is responsible for the Kerberos 5 password chang‐
     ing protocol (used by kpasswd(1))

     This daemon should only be run on the master server, and not on any

     Principals are always allowed to change their own password and list their
     own principal.  Apart from that, doing any operation requires permission
     explicitly added in the ACL file /var/heimdal/kadmind.acl.	 The format of
     this file is:

     principal rights [principal-pattern]

     Where rights is any (comma separated) combination of:
     ·	 change-password or cpw
     ·	 list
     ·	 delete
     ·	 modify
     ·	 add
     ·	 get
     ·	 all

     And the optional principal-pattern restricts the rights to operations on
     principals that match the glob-style pattern.

     Supported options:

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

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

	     what keytab to use

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

     -d, --debug
	     enable debugging

     -p port, --ports=port
	     ports to listen to. By default, if run as a daemon, it listens to
	     port 749, but you can add any number of ports with this option.
	     The port string is a whitespace separated list of port specifica‐
	     tions, with the special string “+” representing the default port.


     This will cause kadmind to listen to port 4711 in addition to any com‐
     piled in defaults:

	   kadmind --ports="+ 4711" &

     This acl file will grant Joe all rights, and allow Mallory to view and
     add host principals.

	   joe/admin@EXAMPLE.COM      all
	   mallory/admin@EXAMPLE.COM  add,get  host/*@EXAMPLE.COM

     kpasswd(1), kadmin(8), kdc(8), kpasswdd(8)
