       kprop - Kerberos utility

       /var/dss/kerberos/bin/kprop  database  slaves_file [ -force ] [ -safe |
       clear ]
       [-realm realm_name]

       The daemon runs on a Kerberos master and propagates the Kerberos	 data‐
       base  to	 the Kerberos slaves, where it is received by the waiting dae‐

       The first parameter, database, is the name of the  file	out  of	 which
       data  is	 extracted.   This  file is not the Kerberos database, See the
       reference page for more information.  The database is a file created by
       the  command.   It  is an ASCII representation of the Kerberos database
       (see the reference page for

       The second parameter that must be supplied is slaves_file, the name  of
       the file on the Kerberos master that lists the Kerberos slaves to which
       propagates the Kerberos master database.	 The is created in format.

       The Kerberos utility first determines whether the ASCII Kerberos	 data‐
       base,  database, was correctly dumped by It accomplishes this by deter‐
       mining if database is older than the file created by during the	opera‐
       tion.  If it is older, the dump did not succeed or is not yet finished.
       If the dump did not complete successfully or has not yet completed, the
       master  database	 is not transferred to any Kerberos slave.  Otherwise,
       determines, for each slave server listed in  the	 whether  or  not  the
       database	 has  changed since the last successful transfer to the slave.
       It determines this for slave server by comparing the modification  time
       of  the	file  with  the modification time of database.	If the file is
       newer, then the database, database, need not be transferred to Finally,
       propagates  the	database to those servers which need a new copy of the
       database and updates the modification time of the file for these	 slave

       -safe  Specifies	 that  the data sent over the network is guaranteed to
	      be authenticated at the destination and protected against	 modi‐
	      fications	 in  transit.  That is, and which are Kerberos princi‐
	      pals, become Kerberos-authenticated to each other and send  mes‐
	      sages  formatted	by For more information about refer to the on-
	      line reference page,

       -clear Specifies that all data  should  be  sent	 in  cleartext	(unen‐
	      crypted).	  This switch is useful when first setting up the Ker‐
	      beros environment.

       -realm Specifies the realm name that you are in.	 If this option is not
	      used,  the  realm_name is given in the file.  (See the reference
	      page for more information.)

       -force Forces the on the Kerberos  master  to  propagate	 the  Kerberos
	      database	to  the	 Kerberos  slaves, even if there are no recent
	      changes to the database.	Without the force flag,	 the  Kerberos
	      database	is not propagated if the database file has not changed
	      since the last successful transfer.

       The Kerberos utility does not support the transfer of encrypted data.
