kproplog - display the contents of the Kerberos principal update log
command displays the contents of the Kerberos principal update log to
standard output. It can be used to keep track of the incremental
updates to the principal database, when enabled. The update log
file contains the update log maintained by the
process on the master KDC server and the kpropd process on the slave
KDC servers. When updates occur, they are logged to this
file. Subsequently any KDC slave configured for incremental updates
will request the current data from the master KDC and update their
file with any updates returned.
command can only be run on a KDC server by someone with privileges
comparable to the superuser. It will display update entries for that
If no options are specified, the summary of the update log is
displayed. If invoked on the master, all of the update entries are
also displayed. When invoked on a slave KDC server, only a summary of
the updates are displayed, which includes the serial number of the
last update received and the associated time stamp of the last update.
Display a summary of the update log. This information includes the
