Name

kclient-kt2prof - Bundle a binary keytab file into a System Configuration XML

Synopsis

kclient-kt2prof [-k keytab] [-p profile] 

Description

The kclient-kt2prof command is used to bundle a binary keytab file into a System Configuration XML, so that it can be transferred by Automated Installer onto the client. For that purpose, the binary file is base64 encoded, partitioned into chunks if required, and stored in the System Configuration XML profile. The resulting profile can be used by installadm create-profile to configure Kerberos on the client of Automated Installation.

–k keytab

Specifies the input filename to read from. If this option is not specified, standard input is read. The maximum size of keytab for bundling into configuration profile is limited to 750 KB.

–p profile

Specifies the output filename to write to. If this option is not specified, output is written to standard output.
