5.3.4 Deleting Principals

To delete a principal, use the kadmin delete_principal command, which requires the “delete” administrative privilege. The syntax is:

     delete_principal [-force] principal

delete_principal has the alias delprinc. The -force option causes delete_principal not to ask if you're sure. For example:

     kadmin: delprinc jennifer
     Are you sure you want to delete the principal
     "jennifer@ATHENA.MIT.EDU"? (yes/no): yes
     Principal "jennifer@ATHENA.MIT.EDU" deleted.
     Make sure that you have removed this principal from
     all ACLs before reusing.
