kpasswd


NAME
     kpasswd - change a user's Kerberos password

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/bin/kpasswd [principal]

DESCRIPTION
     The kpasswd command is used to change a Kerberos principal's
     password. kpasswd prompts for the current Kerberos password,
     which is used to obtain a changepw ticket from the  KDC  for
     the  user's Kerberos realm.  If kpasswd successfully obtains
     the changepw ticket, the user is prompted twice for the  new
     password, and the password is changed.

     If the principal is governed by a policy that specifies  the
     length  and/or  number  of character classes required in the
     new password, the new password must conform to  the  policy.
     (The  five  character  classes  are  lower case, upper case,
     numbers, punctuation, and all other characters.)

OPERANDS
     The following operand is supported:

     principal

         Change the password for the Kerberos  principal  princi-
         pal.  Otherwise, the principal is derived from the iden-
         tity of the user invoking the kpasswd command.



FILES
     /tmp/ovsec_adm.xxxxxx

         Temporary credentials cache  for  the  lifetime  of  the
         password   changing   operation.  (xxxxxx  is  a  random
         string.)
