SYNOPSISkdb_util operation filename
DESCRIPTIONkdb_util allows the Kerberos key distribution center (KDC) database
administrator to perform utility functions on the database.
Operation must be one of the following:
load initializes the KDC database with the records described by
the text contained in the file filename. Any existing data‐
base is overwritten.
dump dumps the KDC database into a text representation in the file
performs a database dump like the dump operation, and addi‐
tionally creates a semaphore file signaling the propagation
software that an update is available for distribution to
slave KDC databases.
prompts for the old and new master key strings, and then
dumps the KDC database into a text representation in the file
filename. The keys in the text representation are encrypted
in the new master key.
prompts for the master key string, and then dumps the KDC
database into a text representation in the file filename.
The existing database is assumed to be encrypted using the
old format (encrypted by the key schedule of the master key);
the dumped database is encrypted using the new format
(encrypted directly with master key).
"verify_master_key: Invalid master key, does not match database."
The master key string entered was incorrect.
