       krb.conf - Kerberos configuration file


       The file contains configuration information describing the Kerberos realm and the Kerberos servers for each realm.

       The  first  line  of  the  file	contains  the  name  of  the realm for the local host. The following lines of the file indicate additional
       realm/host entries.  These lines can contain two parts. The first part is the realm name; the second part is the host  running  a  Kerberos
       server for that realm.

       The following example shows a Kerberos configuration file:

       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 database 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 data-
       base (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 database, database, was correctly dumped by It accomplishes this by deter-
       mining if database is older than the file created by during the operation.  If it is older, the dump did not succeed or	is  not  yet  fin-
       ished.	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 servers.

       -safe  Specifies  that  the data sent over the network is guaranteed to be authenticated at the destination and protected against modifica-
	      tions in transit.  That is, and which are Kerberos principals, become Kerberos-authenticated to each other and send messages format-
	      ted by For more information about refer to the on-line reference page,

       -clear Specifies  that  all data should be sent in cleartext (unencrypted).  This switch is useful when first setting up the Kerberos envi-

       -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.
