verify_krb5_conf -- checks krb5.conf for obvious errors
verify_krb5_conf reads the configuration file krb5.conf, or the file
given on the command line, parses it, checking verifying that the syntax
is not correctly wrong.
If the file is syntactically correct, verify_krb5_conf tries to verify
that the contents of the file is of relevant nature.
KRB5_CONFIG points to the configuration file to read.
/etc/krb5.conf Kerberos 5 configuration file
Possible output from verify_krb5_conf include:
<path>: failed to parse <something> as size/time/number/boolean
Usually means that <something> is misspelled, or that it contains
weird characters. The parsing done by verify_krb5_conf is more
strict than the one performed by libkrb5, so strings that work in
real life might be reported as bad.
<path>: host not found (<hostname>)
Means that <path> is supposed to point to a host, but it can't be
recognised as one.
<path>: unknown or wrong type
Means that <path> is either a string when it should be a list,
vice versa, or just that verify_krb5_conf is confused.
<path>: unknown entry
Means that <string> is not known by verify_krb5_conf.
Since each application can put almost anything in the config file, it's
hard to come up with a watertight verification process. Most of the
default settings are sanity checked, but this does not mean that every
problem is discovered, or that everything that is reported as a possible
problem actually is one. This tool should thus be used with some care.
It should warn about obsolete data, or bad practice, but currently
