kswitch man page

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 containing 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 determine 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/krb5cc_%{uid}

Default location of Kerberos 5 credentials cache
