     kadmind - server for administrative access to kerberos database

     kadmind [-c file | --config-file=file] [-k file | --key-file=file]
     [--keytab=keytab] [-r realm | --realm=realm] [-d | --debug] [-p port |

     kadmind listens for requests for changes to the Kerberos database and
     performs these, subject to permissions.  When starting, if stdin is a
     socket it assumes that it has been started by inetd(8), otherwise it be-
     haves as a daemon, forking processes for each new connection. The --debug
     option causes kadmind to accept exactly one connection, which is useful
     for debugging.

     If built with krb4 support, it implements both the Heimdal Kerberos 5 ad-
     ministrative protocol and the Kerberos 4 protocol. Password changes via
     the Kerberos 4 protocol are also performed by kadmind, but the kpass-
     wdd(8) daemon is responsible for the Kerberos 5 password changing proto-
     col (used by passwd(1))

     This daemon should only be run on ther master server, and not on any

     Principals are always allowed to change their own password and list their
     own principals.  Apart from that, doing any operation requires permission
     explicitly added in the ACL file /var/heimdal/kadmind.acl. The format of
     this file is:

     principal rights [principal-pattern]

     Where rights is any combination of:

     +o   change-password | cpw

     +o   list

     +o   delete

     +o   modify

     +o   add

     +o   get

     +o   all

     And the optional principal-pattern restricts the rights to principals
     that match the glob-style pattern.

     Supported options:

     -c file, --config-file=file
             location of config file

     -k file, --key-file=file
             location of master key file

             what keytab to use

     -r realm, --realm=realm

             realm to use

     -d, --debug
             enable debugging

     -p port, --ports=port
             ports to listen to. By default, if run as a daemon, it listen to
             ports 749, and 751 (if built with Kerberos 4 support), but you
             can add any number of ports with this option. The port string is
             a whitespace separated list of port specifications, with the spe-
             cial string ``+'' representing the default set of ports.


     This will cause kadmind to listen to port 4711 in addition to any com-
     piled in defaults:

           # kadmind --ports="+ 4711" &

     passwd(1), kadmin(8), kdc(8), kpasswdd(8)
