kswitch

SYNOPSIS

kswitch {-c cachename|-p principal}

DESCRIPTION

kswitch makes the specified credential cache the primary cache for the collection, if a cache collection is available.

OPTIONS

-c cachename
Directly specifies the credential cache to be made primary.
-p principal
Causes the cache collection to be searched for a cache containing credentials for principal. If one is found, that collection is made primary.

ENVIRONMENT

kswitch uses the following environment variables:

KRB5CCNAME
Location of the default Kerberos 5 credentials (ticket) cache, in the form type:residual. If no type prefix is present, the FILE type is assumed. The type of the default cache may determine the availability of a cache collection; for instance, a default cache of type DIR causes caches within the directory to be present in the collection.

FILES

DEFCCNAME
Default location of Kerberos 5 credentials cache
