DESCRIPTION

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).

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.
