NAME

     kdb_init - Initialize Kerberos key distribution center database

SYNOPSIS

     kdb_init [realm]

DESCRIPTION

     kdb_init initializes a Kerberos key distribution center database,
     creating the necessary principals.

     If the optional realm argument is not present, kdb_init prompts for a
     realm name.  After determining the realm to be created, it prompts for a
     master key password.  The master key password is used to encrypt every
     encryption key stored in the database.

DIAGNOSTICS

     /var/kerberos/principal: File exists
                   An attempt was made to create a database on a machine which
                   already had an existing database.

FILES

     /var/kerberos/principal.pag, /var/kerberos/principal.dir
                   DBM files containing database
