Enter Principal Dialog Box

Getting there

From this dialog box, specify the principal and realm, which is the first step in creating a new principal profile.

The options include the following:

 

Principal

Type or select from the list the name you want to associate with this principal profile. The principal name is unique within the realm and can be any user or client that the realm's KDC recognizes. If you include the "at" character (@) in the name, you must precede it with a backslash (\).

 

Realm

Select a realm (from the list of realms that have been configured for your computer) that you want to associate with this principal profile. A realm is the name given to a collection of Kerberos principals on a network and is case sensitive (usually uppercase). It is often similar to or the same as the domain name, for example, XYZ.MFG.COM.
