KDB_INIT(8)        BSD System Manager's Manual        KDB_INIT(8)


NAME
       kdb_init  -  initialize  Kerberos  key distribution center
       database

SYNOPSIS
       kdb_init [ realm ]

DESCRIPTION
       kdb_init initializes a Kerberos  key  distribution  center
       database, creating the necessary principals.

       If  the  optional  realm argument is not present, kdb_init
       prompts for a realm name (defaulting to the definition  in
       /usr/include/krb.h).   After  determining  the realm to be
       created, it prompts for a master key password.  The master
       key  password  is  used  to  encrypt  every encryption key
       stored in the database.

DIAGNOSTICS
       "/etc/kerberosIV/principal: File exists"
                           An  attempt  was  made  to  create   a
                           database  on  a  machine which already
                           had an existing database.

FILES
       /etc/kerberosIV/principal.pag,
                           /etc/kerberosIV/principal.dir
                           DBM files containing database

       /usr/include/kerberosIV/krb.h
                           Include file defining default realm
