I am doing some testing with adding a  few million user entries in the 
KDC principal database , I did use kadmin.local to input data into the 
database . The problem I have now is , when the principal DB reaches 
the size of 4294967296 bytes it gets corrupted , The questions are

1. How do you recover such a corrupted database (I tried kdb5_util 
did'nt help)
2. Is there any limit on the no of users you can add or the size of the 
principal DB

Any Comments.
