NAME
       kdb_util -  Kerberos key distribution center database utility

SYNOPSIS
       kdb_util operation filename

DESCRIPTION
       kdb_util	 allows	 the  Kerberos	key distribution center (KDC) database
       administrator to perform utility functions on the database.

       Operation must be one of the following:

       load	 initializes the KDC database with the	records	 described  by
		 the  text contained in the file filename.  Any existing data‐
		 base is overwritten.

       dump	 dumps the KDC database into a text representation in the file
		 filename.

       slave_dump
		 performs  a  database dump like the dump operation, and addi‐
		 tionally creates a semaphore file signaling  the  propagation
		 software  that	 an  update  is	 available for distribution to
		 slave KDC databases.

       new_master_key
		 prompts for the old and new  master  key  strings,  and  then
		 dumps the KDC database into a text representation in the file
		 filename.  The keys in the text representation are  encrypted
		 in the new master key.

       convert_old_db
		 prompts  for  the  master  key string, and then dumps the KDC
		 database into a text representation  in  the  file  filename.
		 The  existing	database  is assumed to be encrypted using the
		 old format (encrypted by the key schedule of the master key);
		 the  dumped  database	is  encrypted  using  the  new	format
		 (encrypted directly with master key).

DIAGNOSTICS
       "verify_master_key: Invalid master key, does not match database."
			   The master key string entered was incorrect.

FILES
       /etc/kerberosIV/principal.pag, /etc/kerberosIV/principal.dir
			   DBM files containing database

       filename.ok	   semaphore file created by slave_dump.
