      kinit - obtain and cache the Kerberos ticket-granting ticket

      kinit [-l life_time] [-s start_time] [-v] [-p] [-f] [-k [-t
      keytab_filename]] [-r renewable_life] [-R] [-c cache_filename] [-S
      service-name] [principal]

      kinit obtains and caches an initial ticket-granting ticket for the

      -l life_time	  Requests a ticket with the lifetime value defined
			  in life_time.	 The value for life_time must be
			  followed immediately by one of the following

			  s    seconds
			  m    minutes
			  h    hours
			  d    days

			  For example, as in kinit -l 90m for 90 minutes.
			  You cannot mix units; a value of 3h30m will result
			  in an error.

			  If the -l option is not specified, the default
			  ticket lifetime (configured by each site) is used.
			  Specifying a ticket lifetime longer than the
			  maximum ticket lifetime (configured by each site)
			  results in a ticket with the maximum lifetime.

      -s start_time	  Requests a postdated ticket, valid starting at
			  start_time.  The format for start_time is the same
			  as the -l option, one of the following: seconds,
			  minutes, hours, or days.  Postdated tickets are
			  issued with the invalid flag set, and need to be
			  fed back to the Kerberos KDC (Key Distribution
			  Center) before use.

      -v		  Requests that the ticket granting ticket in the
			  cache (with the invalid flag set) be passed to the
			  KDC for validation. If the ticket is within its
			  requested time range, the cache is replaced with
			  the validated ticket.

      -p		  Requests proxiable tickets.

      -f		  Requests forwardable tickets.

      -r renewable_life	  Requests renewable tickets, with a total lifetime
			  of renewable_life.  The format for renewable_life
			  is the same as the -l option, one of the
			  following: seconds, minutes, hours, or days.

      -R		  Requests renewal of the ticket-granting ticket.
			  Note that an expired ticket cannot be renewed,
			  even if the ticket is still within its renewable

      -k [-t keytab_filename]
			  Requests a host ticket, obtained from a key in the
			  local host's keytab file. The name and location of
			  the keytab file may be specified with the -t
			  keytab_filename option; otherwise the default name
			  and location will be used.

      -c cache_filename	  Uses cache_filename as the credentials ticket
			  cache name and location. If this option is not
			  used, the default cache name and location are

			  The default credentials cache may vary between
			  systems.  If the KRB5CCNAME environment variable
			  is set, its value is used to name the default
			  ticket cache. Any existing contents of the cache
			  are destroyed by kinit.

      -S service_name	  Specifies an alternate service name to use when
			  getting initial tickets.

      principal		  Uses the principal name from an existing cache if
			  there is one.

      For DCE operations use /opt/dce/bin/kinit.

      kinit uses the following environment variable:

      KRB5CCNAME	  Location of the credentials ticket cache.

      /tmp/krb5cc_{uid}	       Default credentials cache.  {uid} is the
			       decimal UID of the user.

      /etc/krb5.keytab	       Default location for the local host's keytab

      kinit was developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
