wallet-admin

(Wallet server administrative commands)

SYNOPSIS

wallet-admin command [args ...]

DESCRIPTION

wallet-admin provides a command-line interface for performing administrative actions for the wallet system, such as setting up a new database or running reports. It is intended to be run on the wallet server as a user with access to the wallet database and configuration.

This program is a fairly thin wrapper around Wallet::Admin that translates command strings into method calls and returns the results.

OPTIONS

wallet-admin takes no traditional options.

COMMANDS

destroy

Deletes all data in the wallet database and drops all of the wallet-created tables, restoring the database to its state prior to an initialize command. Since this command is destructive and cannot be easily recovered from, wallet-admin will prompt first to be sure the user intends to do this.

initialize <principal>

Given an empty database, initializes it for use with the wallet server by creating the necessary tables and initial metadata. Also creates an ACL with the name ADMIN, used for administrative privileges to the wallet system, and adds an ACL entry to it with a scheme of krb5 and an instance of <principal>. This bootstraps the authentication system and allows that user to make further changes to the ADMIN ACL and the rest of the wallet database. initialize uses localhost as the hostname and <principal> as the user when logging the history of the ADMIN ACL creation and for any subsequent actions required to initialize the database.

Before running initialize, the wallet system has to be configured. See Wallet::Config(3) for more details. Depending on the database backend used, the database may also have to be created in advance.

register (object | verifier) <type> <class>

Registers an implementation of a wallet object or ACL verifier in the wallet database. The Perl class <class> is registered as the implementation of an object of type <type> or an ACL verifier of scheme <type>, allowing creation of objects with that type or ACL lines with that scheme.

All object and ACL implementations that come with wallet are registered by default as part of database initialization, so this command is used primarily to register local implementations of additional object types or ACL schemes.

upgrade

Upgrades the database to the latest schema version, preserving data as much as possible.
