 NAME
      kinit - Obtains and caches ticket-granting ticket

 SYNOPSIS
      kinit [-c cachename] [-f] [-l lifetime] [-p] [-r lifetime] [-v]
      [principal]


 OPTIONS
      -c cachename
		Specifies an alternative credentials cache, cachename, to be
		used in place of the default credentials cache.	 The kinit
		command overwrites the contents of the alternative cache
		with the current credentials.

		The name of the default credentials cache may vary between
		systems. However, if the KRB5CCNAME environment variable is
		set, its value is used to name the default cache.

      -f	Requests the FORWARDABLE option.  This option allows a
		ticket-granting ticket with a different network address than
		the present ticket-granting ticket to be issued to the
		principal. For forwardable tickets to be granted, the
		principal's account in the registry must specify that the
		principal can be granted forwardable tickets.

      -l lifetime
		Specifies the lifetime of the ticket-granting ticket in
		hours.	If this option is not specified, the default ticket
		lifetime (set by each site using the rgy_edit(1m) command)
		is used.

      -p	Requests the PROXIABLE option.	This option allows a ticket
		with a different network address than the present ticket to
		be issued to the principal. For proxiable tickets to be
		granted, the principal's account in the registry must
		specify that the principal can be granted proxiable tickets.

      -r lifetime
		Requests the RENEWABLE option.	This option allows the
		tickets issued to the principal to be renewed.	For
		renewable tickets to be granted, the principal's account in
		the registry must specify that the principal can be granted
		renewable tickets. The lifetime of the ticket-granting
		ticket is specified in hours by lifetime.

      -v	Specifies that the command should run in verbose mode.


 ARGUMENTS

 kinit(1m)		  Open Software Foundation		   kinit(1m)




      principal The principal argument specifies the name of the principal
		for whom the ticket-granting ticket should be obtained. If
		principal is omitted, the principal name from the existing
		cache is reused.


 DESCRIPTION
      The kinit command can be used to refresh a DCE credentials cache.
      When you invoke kinit, it prompts for your password.

      The ticket lifetime and renewable lifetime are set in the following
      format:

      {num {interval}}...


      where:


      num	A number that specifies the number of the interval; interval
		can be specified by the following:


		  +  w - weeks

		  +  d - days

		  +  h - hours

		  +  m - minutes

		  +  s - seconds


      For example, to set the lifetime to 3 weeks, 5 days, and 10 hours, the
      entry would be the following:

      3w5d10h


 FILES
      /tmp/krb5cc_[unix_id]
			  If the KRB5CCNAME environment variable is not set,
			  the name of the file is in the form shown where
			  [unix_id] is the decimal UNIX ID of the user.	 If
			  the KRB5CCNAME environment variable is set, its
			  setting determines the name of the file.
