Description:The Authenticate() application has a flag (d) that lets you state that the path provided by the first argument is the path to the AstDB key. Unfortunately I can't seem to make this work.

When specifying the 'd' flag and providing the path to the AstDB, authentication never happens

****** STEPS TO REPRODUCE ******

Actually it appears as if I'm using it wrong. The way I was using it is how I would have expected it to work, but c'est la vie.

The database key provided should be something like:


And the value of that family/key value doesn't matter, as the last key name is what gets used for the password, not the value.

I'm leaving this open as a documentation task.
