kswitch (1)

Name

kswitch - switch primary ticket cache

Synopsis

kswitch {-c cachename|-p principal}

Description

KSWITCH(1)                       MIT Kerberos                       KSWITCH(1)



NAME
       kswitch - switch primary ticket cache

SYNOPSIS
       kswitch {-c cachename|-p principal}

DESCRIPTION
       kswitch  makes the specified credential cache the primary cache for the
       collection, if a cache collection is available.

OPTIONS
       -c cachename
              Directly specifies the credential cache to be made primary.

       -p principal
              Causes the cache collection to be searched for a cache  contain-
              ing credentials for principal.  If one is found, that collection
              is made primary.

ENVIRONMENT
       kswitch uses the following environment variables:

       KRB5CCNAME
              Location of the default Kerberos 5 credentials  (ticket)  cache,
              in  the  form  type:residual.  If no type prefix is present, the
              FILE type is assumed.  The type of the default cache may  deter-
              mine  the  availability  of  a cache collection; for instance, a
              default cache of type DIR causes caches within the directory  to
              be present in the collection.

FILES
       FILE:/tmp/volatile-user/%{uid}/krb5cc_%{uid}
              Default location of Kerberos 5 credentials cache
