       kdb_edit -  Kerberos key distribution center database editing utility

       kdb_edit [ -n ]

       kdb_edit	 is used to create or change principals stored in the Kerberos
       key distribution center (KDC) database.

       When executed, kdb_edit prompts for the master key string and  verifies
       that  it	 matches  the  master  key  stored in the database.  If the -n
       option is specified, the master key is instead fetched from the	master
       key cache file.

       Once  the  master key has been verified, kdb_edit begins a prompt loop.
       The user is prompted for the principal and instance to be modified.  If
       the  entry is not found the user may create it.	Once an entry is found
       or created, the user may set the	 password,  expiration	date,  maximum
       ticket  lifetime,  and  attributes.   Default expiration dates, maximum
       ticket lifetimes, and attributes are presented in brackets; if the user
       presses	return the default is selected.	 There is no default password.
       The password RANDOM is interpreted specially, and if entered  the  user
       may have the program select a random DES key for the principal.

       Upon  successfully  creating  or	 changing  the entry, ``Edit O.K.'' is

       "verify_master_key: Invalid master key, does not match database."
			   The master key string entered was incorrect.
