Node:realms (krb5.conf), Next:, Previous:libdefaults, Up:krb5.conf


In the [realms] section, the following Kerberos V4 tags may be used:

Identifies the default domain for hosts in this realm. This is needed for translating V4 principal names (which do not contain a domain name) to V5 principal names. The default is your Kerberos realm name, converted to lower case.
This subsection allows the administrator to configure exceptions to the default_domain mapping rule. It contains V4 instances (tag name) which should be translated to some specific hostname (tag value) as the second component in a Kerberos V5 principal name.
This relation allows the administrator to configure a different realm name to be used when converting V5 principals to V4 ones. This should only be used when running separate V4 and V5 realms, with some external means of password sychronization between the realms.
