NAME
     kadmind -- server for administrative access to Kerberos database

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

DESCRIPTION
     kadmind listens for requests for changes to the Kerberos database and performs these, sub-
     ject 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 con-
     nection. 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 changing protocol (used by
     kpasswd(1)).

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

     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:
     o	 change-password or cpw
     o	 list
     o	 delete
     o	 modify
     o	 add
     o	 get
     o	 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

     --keytab=keytab
	     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 sepa-
	     rated list of port specifications, with the special string ``+'' representing the
	     default port.

FILES
     /var/heimdal/kadmind.acl

EXAMPLES
     This will cause kadmind to listen to port 4711 in addition to any compiled 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
