In fact I have my database stored in LDAP, and I planned to do all the
administration this way using Java/JNDI, but I don't have any clue
about how to modify the krb5Key attribute, where I guess the password
is stored, am I right? How can I update it? I guess I must also update
the krb5KDCFlags... is there any documentation about this? Or should I
read the code as Luke sugested?

Thanks everybody for your comments,
