NAME
       kpasswd - change a user's Kerberos password

SYNOPSIS
       kpasswd [principal]

DESCRIPTION
       The  kpasswd  command  is used to change a Kerberos principal's password.  Kpasswd prompts for the current Ker-
       beros password, which is used to obtain a changepw ticket from the KDC  for  the  user's  Kerberos  realm.   If
       kpasswd  successfully  obtains  the  changepw  ticket, the user is prompted twice for the new password, and the
       password is changed.

       If the principal is governed by a policy that specifies the length and/or number of character classes  required
       in  the new password, the new password must conform to the policy.  (The five character classes are lower case,
       upper case, numbers, punctuation, and all other characters.)

OPTIONS
       principal
              change the password for the Kerberos principal principal.  Otherwise, kpasswd uses  the  principal  name
              from  an existing ccache if there is one; if not, the principal is derived from the identity of the user
              invoking the kpasswd command.

PORTS
       kpasswd looks first for kpasswd_server = host:port in the [realms] section of the krb5.conf file under the cur-
       rent realm.  If that is missing, kpasswd looks for the admin_server entry, but substitutes 464 for the port.

       kadmin(8), kadmind(8)

BUGS
       kpasswd may not work with multi-homed hosts running on the Solaris platform.
