KDB_EDIT(8)KDB_EDIT(8)NAMEkdb_edit - Kerberos key distribution center database editing utility
SYNOPSISkdb_edit [ -n ]
DESCRIPTIONkdb_edit is used to create or change principals stored in the Kerberos
key distribution center (KDC) database.
When executed, kdb_edit prompts for the master key string and verifies
that it matches the master key stored in the database. If the -n
option is specified, the master key is instead fetched from the master
key cache file.
Once the master key has been verified, kdb_edit begins a prompt loop.
The user is prompted for the principal and instance to be modified. If
the entry is not found the user may create it. Once an entry is found
or created, the user may set the password, expiration date, maximum
ticket lifetime, and attributes. Default expiration dates, maximum
ticket lifetimes, and attributes are presented in brackets; if the user
presses return the default is selected. There is no default password.
The password RANDOM is interpreted specially, and if entered the user
may have the program select a random DES key for the principal.
Upon successfully creating or changing the entry, ``Edit O.K.'' is
"verify_master_key: Invalid master key, does not match database."
The master key string entered was incorrect.
