ok here's the problem


while trying to configure krb5 after a standard pkg_add install  I followed
all of the instructions in the html docs only to be stumped at this point


root at CATHARSISS:/usr/local/var/krb5kdc# kadmin.local 

Authenticating as principal root/admin at with password.

kadmin.local: Cannot find/read stored master key while initializing
kadmin.local interface

Exit 1

root at CATHARSISS:/usr/local/var/krb5kdc#





this is while trying to add the first initial administrator 



my krb5.conf in /etc is as follows



    default_realm =


[realms] = {

  kdc =

     kdc =

     kdc =

     admin_server =




    kdc = FILE:/var/log/krb5kdc.log

    admin_server = FILE:/var/log/kadmin.log

    default = FILE:/var/log/krb5lib.log



phobia and  distortia are AD windows 2003 machines phobia is PDC and
distortia is operations master therefore are keberos master servers.





::1 localhost  localhost CATHARSISS DISTORTIA       PHOBIA



any ideas what's wrong with my configuration ?
