KDC Machine: Add a Test User to the KDC

To perform Kerberos authentication, the user authenticating must exist in the Kerberos database. In this example, the user has the user name kerberos-test, which means that the Kerberos Principal is kerberos-test@EXAMPLE.COM.

Create the user by using the command sequence in this example:

$ /usr/sbin/kadmin -p kws/admin
Enter Password: secret
kadmin:  add_principal kerberos-test
Enter password for principal "kerberos-test@EXAMPLE.COM": secret

Re-enter password for principal "kerberos-test@EXAMPLE.COM": secret

Principal "kerberos-test@EXAMPLE.COM" created.
kadmin:  quit
