warn.conf(4)                     File Formats                     warn.conf(4)



NAME
       warn.conf - Kerberos warning configuration file

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/krb5/warn.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The  warn.conf  file  contains configuration information specifying how
       users will be warned by the ktkt_warnd daemon about  ticket  expiration
       on a Kerberos client. Credential expiration warnings are sent, by means
       of syslog, to auth.notice. All other warning messages are sent to  dae-
       mon.notice.

       Each Kerberos client host must have a warn.conf file in order for users
       on that host to get Kerberos warnings from the client. Entries  in  the
       warn.conf file must have the following format:

       principal syslog | terminal | mail time [email_address]

       principal       Specifies the principal name to be warned. The asterisk
                       (*) wildcard can be used to specify groups  of  princi-
                       pals.



       syslog          Sends the warnings to the system's syslog. Depending on
                       the /etc/syslog.conf file, syslog entries  are  written
                       to  the  /var/adm/messages file and/or displayed on the
                       terminal.



       terminal        Sends the warnings to display on the terminal.



       mail            Sends the warnings as email to the address specified by
                       email_address.



       time            Specifies  how  much time before the TGT expires when a
                       warning should be sent. The default time value is  sec-
                       onds,  but  you  can  specify h (hours) and m (minutes)
                       after the number to specify other time values.



       email_address   Specifies the email address at which to send the  warn-
                       ings.  This  field must be specified only with the mail
                       field.



EXAMPLES
       Example 1: Specifying warnings

       The following warn.conf entry

       * syslog 5m

       specifies that warnings will be sent to the syslog five minutes  before
       the  expiration  of the TGT for all principals. The form of the message
       is:

       jdbATACME.COM: your kerberos credentials expire in 5 minutes
