Description Andrew B. Young 2006-07-11 10:44:56 EDT
Description of problem:

The man page for ktutil does not seem to match the available options.  I found
this after reading a post on the kerberos mail list (referenced below.)  The
post does a little to describe a difference between kadmin->ktadd and
ktutil->add_entry.  But the man page for ktutil does not include add_entry.

Besides adding this option, it would be wonderful if the differences were more
thoroughly explained.  The object is to prevent the question in the post from

Additionally, the kadmin should reference ktutil in the See Also section.

tx, Andrew

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
man ktutil vs. ktutil -> ?

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run man ktutil
2. Run ktutil and enter ? to list the options
Actual results:
There is no add_entry option in the man page

Expected results:
The options should match
