VERIFY_KRB5_CONF(8)	  BSD System Manager's Manual	   VERIFY_KRB5_CONF(8)

NAME
     verify_krb5_conf -- checks	krb5.conf for obvious errors

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 syn-
     tax 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

SEE ALSO
     krb5.conf(5)

BUGS
     Since each	application can	put almost anything in the config file,	it's
     hard to come up with a water tight	verification process. Most of the de-
     fault settings are	sanity checked,	but this does not mean that every
     problem is	discovered, or that everything that is reported	as a possible
     problem actually is one. This tool	should thus be used with some care.

     It	should warn about obsolete data, or bad	practice, but currently
     doesn't.
