nisrm


NAME
     nisrm - remove NIS+ objects from the namespace

SYNOPSIS
     nisrm [-if] name...


DESCRIPTION
     The nisrm command removes NIS+ objects named name  from  the
     NIS+ namespace.


     This command will fail if the NIS+ master server is not run-
     ning.


     This command will not remove directories.  See  nisrmdir(1).
     Nor will it remove non-empty tables. See nistbladm(1).

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -i    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.


     -f    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.


OPERANDS
     The following operand is supported:

     name    A NIS+ named object.


EXAMPLES
     Example 1 Using the nisrm Command


     Remove the objects  foo, bar, and baz from the namespace:


       example% nisrm foo bar baz



ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
     NIS_PATH     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).


EXIT STATUS
     The following exit values are returned:

     0    Successful operation.


     1    Operation failed.

     butes:

NOTES
     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
