How to add a new user to Kerberos

The Kerberos is used only for authentication purpose that means that user we are going to add must exists as a normal unix account (or ldap account).
root@kdc1:~# kadmin.local -q "addprinc user1"
Principal "user1@DEV.LOCAL" created.
Let test it out:
root@kdc1:~# kinit user1 && klist && kdestroy 
Default principal: user1@DEV.LOCAL
The operations must be performed on kdc1 that is Kerberos administrative server.
