KRB.REALMS(5)                 File Formats Manual                KRB.REALMS(5)



NAME
       /etc/krb.realms - host to Kerberos realm translation file

DESCRIPTION
       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):
            host_name kerberos_realm
            domain_name kerberos_realm
       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.
