       kdb_edit - Kerberos database editing utility

       /var/dss/kerberos/bin/kdb_edit [-n]

       You  use	 the command to create or change principals stored in the Ker‐
       beros database.	When you invoke kdb_edit, the command prompts you  for
       the  Kerberos database master key and verifies that the key is the same
       as the master key of the Kerberos database.  If the -n option is	 used,
       the key is fetched from the master key file.

       Once  the  master  key is verified, kdb_edit begins a loop that prompts
       you for the principal and instance name to modify. If kdb_edit does not
       find  an	 entry,	 you can create one. Once kdb_edit finds or creates an
       entry, you can set the password, expiration date, maximum ticket	 life‐
       time, and attributes of a principal.

       The  kdb_edit command displays, in brackets, the default values for the
       expiration dates, maximum ticket lifetimes, and	attributes.   You  can
       select  any  default  by	 pressing the return key. The kdb_edit command
       indicates that you have successfully created or	changed	 an  entry  by
       displaying the message, "Edit O.K."

       There  is  no  default password for a principal.	 However, if you enter
       RANDOM as the password for a principal, kdb_edit selects a random  Data
       Encryption Standard (DES) key for the principal.

       Whenever	 the  Kerberos database is changed by the modification time of
       is updated.  The file indicates the age of the database.

       -n     If you specify the command with the -n option, kdb_edit  fetches
	      the key from the master key file.
