KRB.REALMS(5) File Formats Manual KRB.REALMS(5)
/etc/krb.realms - host to Kerberos realm translation file
krb.realms provides a translation from a hostname to the Kerberos realm
name for the services provided by that host.
Each line of the translation file is in one of the following forms
(domain_name should be of the form .XXX.YYY, e.g. .LCS.MIT.EDU):
If a hostname exactly matches the host_name field in a line of the
first form, the corresponding realm is the realm of the host. If a
hostname does not match any host_name in the file, but its domain
exactly matches the domain_name field in a line of the second form, the
corresponding realm is the realm of the host.
If no translation entry applies, the host's realm is considered to be
the hostname's domain portion converted to upper case.
