SYNOPSIS

verify_krb5_conf [config-file]

DESCRIPTION

verify_krb5_conf reads the configuration file krb5.conf, or the file given on the command line, and parses it, thereby verifying that the syntax is not correctly wrong.

If the file is syntactically correct, verify_krb5_conf tries to verify that the contents of the file is of relevant nature.

DIAGNOSTICS

Possible output from verify_krb5_conf include:
"<path>: failed to parse <something> as size/time/number/boolean"
Usually means that <something> is misspelled, or that it contains weird characters. The parsing done by verify_krb5_conf is more strict than the one performed by libkrb5, and so strings that work in real life, might be reported as bad.
"<path>: host not found (<hostname>)"
Means that <path> is supposed to point to a host, but it can’t be recognised as one.
<path>: unknown or wrong type
Means that <path> is either is a string when it should be a list, vice versa, or just that verify_krb5_conf is confused.
<path>: unknown entry
Means that <string> is not known by "".

ENVIRONMENT

KRB5_CONFIG points to the configuration file to read.

FILES

/etc/krb5.conf
Kerberos 5 configuration file
