       ipa-rmkeytab - Remove a kerberos principal from a keytab


       ipa-rmkeytab [ -p principal-name ] [ -k keytab-file ] [ -r realm ] [ -d ]


       Removes a kerberos principal from a keytab.

       Kerberos  keytabs  are used for services (like sshd) to perform kerberos authentication. A
       keytab is a file with one or more secrets (or keys) for a kerberos principal.

       A kerberos service principal is a kerberos identity that can be used  for  authentication.
       Service  principals  contain  the name of the service, the hostname of the server, and the
       realm name.

       ipa-rmkeytab provides two ways to remove principals.  A specific principal can be  removed
       or all principals for a given realm can be removed.

       All encryption types and versions of a principal are removed.

       The realm may be included when removing a specific principal but it is not required.

       NOTE:  removing  a principal from the keytab does not affect the Kerberos principal stored
       in the IPA server. It merely removes the entry from the local keytab.


       -p principal-name
              The non-realm part of the full principal name.

       -k keytab-file
              The keytab file to remove the principal(s) from.

       -r realm
              A realm to remove all principals for.

       -d     Debug mode. Additional information is displayed.

         # ipa-rmkeytab -r EXAMPLE.COM -k /etc/krb5.keytab
