       kdb_edit - Kerberos database editing utility

       /var/dss/kerberos/bin/kdb_edit [-n]

       You  use the command to create or change principals stored in the Kerberos database.  When you invoke kdb_edit, the command prompts you for
       the Kerberos database master key and verifies that the key is the same as the master key of the Kerberos database.  If  the  -n	option	is
       used, the key is fetched from the master key file.

       Once  the  master  key is verified, kdb_edit begins a loop that prompts you for the principal and instance name to modify. If kdb_edit does
       not find an entry, you can create one. Once kdb_edit finds or creates an entry, you can set the password, expiration date,  maximum  ticket
       lifetime, and attributes of a principal.

       The kdb_edit command displays, in brackets, the default values for the expiration dates, maximum ticket lifetimes, and attributes.  You can
       select any default by pressing the return key. The kdb_edit command indicates that you have successfully created or  changed  an  entry	by
       displaying the message, "Edit O.K."

       There is no default password for a principal.  However, if you enter RANDOM as the password for a principal, kdb_edit selects a random Data
       Encryption Standard (DES) key for the principal.

       Whenever the Kerberos database is changed by the modification time of is updated.  The file indicates the age of the database.

       -n     If you specify the command with the -n option, kdb_edit fetches the key from the master key file.

       kpropd - Kerberos utility

       /usr/etc/kpropd output_file [ -d krb_database ] [ -l log_file ]
       [ -r realm_name ] [ -s srvtab_file ]

       The  daemon  runs on a Kerberos slave and waits to receive the Kerberos database propagated from a process on a Kerberos master.  The first
       parameter, output_file, that you must supply to the daemon is the name of a database file in which data will be placed when it  comes  over
       the network.

       The  utility  executes  the utility, which loads the database from the file specified in output_file, puts it in format, and copies it into
       the Kerberos database in the directory.

       -r     Specifies the receiver realm for which data is accepted; specifies the default.  (See the reference page for more information.)

       -s     Specifies the service table (srvtab) file from which to read the password of the daemon, because a password cannot be entered  manu-
	      ally when is running as a daemon.  The default is

       -d     Specifies  the primary Kerberos database file of a Kerberos slave.  This file receives a new or updated database propagated from the
	      Kerberos master.	The default is the database in the directory, The files are: and

       -l     This option specifies the name of the log file to use.  The default log file is

       The command does not support the transfer of encrypted data.

       If the directory is not included in the PATH environment variable of the process that runs then will fail because it cannot locate
