nisrm - remove NIS+ objects from the namespace
nisrm [-if] name...
The nisrm command removes NIS+ objects named name from the NIS+ namespace.
This command will fail if the NIS+ master server is not running.
This command will not remove directories. See nisrmdir(1). Nor will it remove non-empty tables. See nistbladm(1).
The following options are supported:
Interactive mode. Like the system rm(1) command the nisrm command will ask for confirmation prior to removing
an object. If the name specified by name is a non-fully qualified name this option is forced on. This prevents the removal of unexpected objects.
Force. The removal is attempted, and if it fails for permission reasons, a nischmod(1) is attempted and the removal retried.
If the command fails, it fails silently.
The following operand is supported:
A NIS+ named object.
Example 1 Using the nisrm Command
Remove the objects foo, bar, and baz from the namespace:
example% nisrm foo bar baz
If this variable is set, and the NIS+ name is not fully qualified, each directory specified will be searched until the object is found. See nisdefaults(1).
The following exit values are returned:
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:
|ATTRIBUTE TYPE||ATTRIBUTE VALUE|
NIS+(1), nischmod(1), nisdefaults(1), nisrmdir(1), nistbladm(1), rm(1), attributes(5)
NIS+ might not be supported in future releases of the SolarisTM Operating Environment. Tools to aid the migration from NIS+ to LDAP are available in the Solaris 9 operating environment. For more information, visit http://www.sun.com/directory/nisplus/transition.html.
