krb5_aname_to_localname - Convert a principal name to a local name.

krb5_error_code krb5_aname_to_localname(krb5_context context, krb5_const_principal aname, int lnsize_in, char * lname)

[in] context - Library context

[in] aname - Principal name

[in] lnsize_in - Space available in lname

[out] lname - Local name buffer to be filled in

  • 0 Success
  • System errors
  • Kerberos error codes

If aname does not correspond to any local account, KRB5_LNAME_NOTRANS is returned. If lnsize_in is too small for the local name, KRB5_CONFIG_NOTENUFSPACE is returned.

Local names, rather than principal names, can be used by programs that translate to an environment-specific name (for example, a user account name).
