Realm Configuration Decisions

Before installing Kerberos V5, it is necessary to consider the following issues:

  • The name of your Kerberos realm (or the name of each realm, if you need more than one).
  • How you will map your hostnames onto Kerberos realms.
  • Which ports your KDC and and kadmin (database access) services will use.
  • How many slave KDCs you need and where they should be located.
  • The hostnames of your master and slave KDCs.
  • How frequently you will propagate the database from the master KDC to the slave KDCs.
  • Whether you need backward compatibility with Kerberos V4.
