KDB_UTIL(8)                                           KDB_UTIL(8)

       kdb_util  -   Kerberos  key  distribution  center database

       kdb_util operation filename

       kdb_util allows the Kerberos key distribution center (KDC)
       database administrator to perform utility functions on 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 representa-
                 tion in the file filename.

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

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

                 prompts for the  master  key  string,  and  then
                 dumps  the  KDC database into a text representa-
                 tion  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).
