OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for kpasswd (opensolaris section 1)

kpasswd(1)				  User Commands 			       kpasswd(1)

NAME
       kpasswd - change a user's Kerberos password

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/bin/kpasswd [principal]

DESCRIPTION
       The kpasswd command is used to change a Kerberos principal's password. kpasswd prompts for
       the current Kerberos password, which is used to obtain a changepw ticket from the KDC  for
       the  user's  Kerberos realm. If kpasswd successfully obtains the changepw ticket, the user
       is prompted twice for the new password, and the password is changed.

       If the principal is governed by a policy that specifies the length and/or number of  char-
       acter  classes  required in the new password, the new password must conform to the policy.
       (The five character classes are lower case, upper  case,  numbers,  punctuation,  and  all
       other characters.)

OPERANDS
       The following operand is supported:

       principal    Change  the  password  for	the  Kerberos principal principal. Otherwise, the
		    principal is derived from the identity of the user invoking the kpasswd  com-
		    mand.

FILES
       /tmp/ovsec_adm.xxxxxx	Temporary  credentials	cache  for  the  lifetime of the password
				changing operation. (xxxxxx is a random string.)
