       winbind_krb5_locator - A	plugin for MIT and Heimdal Kerberos for
       detecting KDCs using Windows semantics.

       This plugin is part of the samba(7) suite.

       winbind_krb5_locator is a plugin	that permits MIT and Heimdal Kerberos
       libraries to detect Kerberos Servers (for the KDC and kpasswd service)
       using the same semantics	that other tools of the	Samba suite use. This
       include site-aware DNS service record lookups and caching of closest
       dc. The plugin uses the public locator API provided by most modern
       Kerberos	implementations.

       MIT Kerberos (at	least version 1.5) or Heimdal Kerberos (at least
       version 1.0) is required.

       The plugin queries the winbindd(8) daemon which needs to	be configured
       and started separately.

       The file	needs to be manually copied to the
       plugin directory	of the system Kerberos library.	For MIT	Kerberos this
       is often: /usr/lib/krb5/plugins/libkrb5/. For Heimdal Kerberos this is
       often: /usr/lib/plugin/krb5/. Please check your local Kerberos
       installation for	the correct paths. No modification in /etc/krb5.conf
       is required to enable the use of	this plugin.

       After copying the locator plugin	to the appropriate plugin directory it
       should immediately be available for use.	Users should be	able to	kinit
       into their kerberized Windows environment without any modification or
       servers being put manually into /etc/krb5.conf.

       This man	page is	correct	for version 3 of the Samba suite.

       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
       Andrew Tridgell.	Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       The winbind_krb5_locator	manpage	was written by Guenther	Deschner.
