The kproplog command displays the contents of the KDC database update
log to standard output. It can be used to keep track of incremental
updates to the principal database. The update log file contains the
update log maintained by the kadmind(8) process on the master
KDC server and the kpropd(8) 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 log file with any updates
The kproplog command requires read access to the update log file. It
will display update entries only for the KDC it runs on.
If no options are specified, kproplog displays a summary of the update
log. If invoked on the master, kproplog also displays all of the
update entries. If invoked on a slave KDC server, kproplog displays
only a summary of the updates, which includes the serial number of the
last update received and the associated time stamp of the last update.
