How to Install the KDC Package

By default, Kerberos client software is installed on your system. To install a Key Distribution Center (KDC), you must add the KDC package.

Before You Begin

You must be assigned the Software Installation rights profile to add packages to the system. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  1. Install the KDC package.
    $ pkg install system/security/kerberos-5

    For more information, see the pkg(1) man page.

  2. (Optional) List the Kerberos services.

    With the addition of the server package, your system has two additional Kerberos services. Like Kerberos client software, these services are disabled by default. You configure Kerberos before enabling these services.

    $ svcs krb5
    STATE          STIME    FMRI
    disabled       Sep_10   svc:/network/security/krb5kdc:default
    disabled       Sep_10   svc:/network/security/krb5_prop:default
    $ svcs | grep kerb
    STATE          STIME    FMRI
    disabled       Sep_07   svc:/system/kerberos/install:default
