Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 437564
ipa-getkeytab man page is out-of-date
Last modified: 2015-01-04 18:31:16 EST
Description of problem:
The utility itself reports the following usage:
Usage: ipa-getkeytab [-s|--server Server Name]
[-p|--principal Kerberos Service Principal Name]
[-k|--keytab Keytab File Name]
[-e|--enctypes Comma separated encription types list]
The man page shows:
ipa-getkeytab [-a] principal-name file-name
And aren't arguments within a  optional? -s, -p and -k are all required. Is
this just a problem with popt?
I already have a patch in the pipe for this.
Will set as MODIFIED when pushed.
hm. I would like to see the list of encryption types atleast mentioned
as an example or tell the user a way to get that info.
update the man page with a method of how to obtain the list of supported enc types
Created attachment 301722 [details]
The option: "--permitted-enctypes" is not in man page, can this be added into
the man page?
[btw, the option is working. We just need the man page to be updated. My test as
server64[05/22/24 11:10] ipa-getkeytab --permitted-enctypes
Supported encryption types:
AES-256 CTS mode with 96-bit SHA-1 HMAC
AES-128 CTS mode with 96-bit SHA-1 HMAC
Triple DES cbc mode with HMAC/sha1
ArcFour with HMAC/md5
DES cbc mode with CRC-32
DES cbc mode with RSA-MD5
DES cbc mode with RSA-MD4
server64[05/22/24 11:11] man ipa-getkeytab
ipa-getkeytab - Get a keytab for a kerberos principal
ipa-getkeytab <-s ipaserver> <-p principal-name> <-k keytab-file> [-e
Simo's reply regarding the enctypes list
The list is dependent on the platfrom you run the tool on (we compile it
only for linux atm anyway).
The list is retrieve from the kerberos configuration and if no action is
taken retiurns the default set of supported types by the currently
installed kerberos libraries.
but the bug sill valid at this point due to we still don't have the correct msg
in man page for --permitted-nctypes option
bug closed, as the "--permitted-enctypes" is under "-e" option
