Start the Kerberos Daemons on the Master KDC

At this point, you are ready to start the Kerberos daemons on the Master KDC. To do so, type:

     shell% /usr/local/sbin/krb5kdc
     shell% /usr/local/sbin/kadmind

Each daemon will fork and run in the background. Assuming you want these daemons to start up automatically at boot time, you can add them to the KDC's /etc/rc or /etc/inittab file. You need to have a stash file in order to do this.

You can verify that they started properly by checking for their startup messages in the logging locations you defined in /etc/krb5.conf. (See Edit the Configuration Files.) For example:

     shell% tail /var/log/krb5kdc.log
     Dec 02 12:35:47 beeblebrox krb5kdc[3187](info): commencing operation
     shell% tail /var/log/kadmin.log
     Dec 02 12:35:52 beeblebrox kadmind[3189](info): starting

Any errors the daemons encounter while starting will also be listed in the logging output.
