NAME

     kdb_util - Kerberos key distribution center database utility

SYNOPSIS

     kdb_util operation ~ filename

DESCRIPTION

     kdb_util allows the Kerberos key distribution center (KDC) database
     administrator to perform utility functions on the database.

     The operation must be one of the following:

     load            initializes the KDC database with the records described
                     by the text contained in the file filename.  Any existing
                     database is overwritten.

     dump            dumps the KDC database into a text representation in the
                     file filename.

     slave_dump      performs a database dump like the dump operation, and
                     additionally creates a semaphore file signalling the
                     propagation software that an update is available for
                     distribution to slave KDC databases.

     merge           merges in the entries from filename into the database.

     new_master_key  prompts for the old and new master key strings, and then
                     dumps the KDC database into a text representation in the
                     file filename.  The keys in the text representation are
                     encrypted in the new master key.

     convert_old_db  prompts for the master key string, and then dumps the KDC
                     database into a text representation in the file filename.
                     The existing database is assumed to be encrypted using
                     the old format (encrypted by the key schedule of the
                     master key); the dumped database is encrypted using the
                     new format (encrypted directly with master key).

DIAGNOSTICS

     verify_master_key: Invalid master key, does not match database.
                   The master key string entered was incorrect.
