kpasswd(1)                       User Commands                      kpasswd(1)



NAME
       kpasswd - change a user's Kerberos password

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/bin/kpasswd [principal]

DESCRIPTION
       The  kpasswd command is used to change a Kerberos principal's password.
       kpasswd prompts for the current Kerberos password,  which  is  used  to
       obtain a changepw ticket from the KDC for the user's Kerberos realm. If
       kpasswd successfully obtains the changepw ticket, the user is  prompted
       twice for the new password, and the password is changed.

       If  the  principal  is  governed  by a policy that specifies the length
       and/or number of character classes required in the  new  password,  the
       new  password  must  conform to the policy. (The five character classes
       are lower case, upper case, numbers, punctuation, and all other charac-
       ters.)

OPERANDS
       The following operand is supported:

       principal

           Change  the  password  for the Kerberos principal principal. Other-
           wise, the principal is derived from the identity of the user invok-
           ing the kpasswd command.



FILES
       /tmp/ovsec_adm.xxxxxx

           Temporary credentials cache for the lifetime of the password chang-
           ing operation. (xxxxxx is a random string.)
