hpropd — receive a propagated database


hpropd [-d file | --database=file] [-n | --stdin] [--print] [-i | --no-inetd] [-k keytab | --keytab=keytab] [-4 | --v4dump]


hpropd receives a database sent by hprop. and writes it as a local database.

By default, hpropd expects to be started from inetd if stdin is a socket and expects to receive the dumped database over stdin otherwise. If the database is sent over the network, it is authenticated and encrypted. Only connections authenticated with the principal kadmin/hprop are accepted.

Options supported:

-d file, --database=file


-n, --stdin

read from stdin


print dump to stdout

-i, --no-inetd

not started from inetd

-k keytab, --keytab=keytab

keytab to use for authentication

-4, --v4dump

create v4 type DB
