KDC Configuration Options

Starting in the Solaris 10 5/08 and the Solaris Express Developer Edition 1/08 releases, there are several ways to configure a KDC. The simplest versions use the kdcmgr utility to configure the KDC automatically or interactively. The automatic version requires that you use command line options to define the configuration parameters. This method is especially useful for scripts. The interactive version prompts you for all information that is needed. See Table 23-1 for pointers to the instructions for using this command.

In addition, starting in the Solaris 10 5/08 and Solaris Express Developer Edition 1/08 releases, support for using LDAP to manage the database files for Kerberos has been added. See How to Configure a KDC to Use an LDAP Data Server for instructions. Using LDAP simplifies administration for sites that require better coordination between the Solaris Kerberos databases and their existing DS setup.
