 NAME
      nischmod - change access rights on an NIS+ object

 SYNOPSIS
      nischmod [ -AfLP ] mode name...

 DESCRIPTION
      nischmod changes the access rights (mode) of the NIS+ objects or
      entries specified by name to mode.  Entries are specified using
      indexed names (see nismatch(1)).	Only principals with modify access
      to an object may change its mode.

      mode has the following form:

	   rights [,rights] ...

      rights has the form:

	   [ who ] op permission [ op permission  ]...

      who is a combination of:

	   n	   Nobody's permissions.
	   o	   Owner's permissions.
	   g	   Group's permissions.
	   w	   World's permissions.
	   a	   All, or owg.

	   If who is omitted, the default is a.

      op is one of:

	   +	   To grant the permission.
	   -	   To revoke the permission.
	   =	   To set the permissions explicitly.

      permission is any combination of:

	   r	   Read.
	   m	   Modify.
	   c	   Create.
	   d	   Destroy.

    Options
      -A   Modify all entries in all tables in the concatenation path that
	   match the search criteria specified in name.	 This option implies
	   the -P switch.

      -f   Force the operation and fail silently if it does not succeed.

      -L   Follow links and change the permission of the linked object or
	   entries rather than the permission of the link itself.

      -P   Follow the concatenation path within a named table.	This option
	   is only applicable when either name is an indexed name or the -L
	   switch is also specified and the named object is a link pointing
	   to an entry.

 EXAMPLES
      Give everyone read access to an object (that is, access for owner,
      group, and all):

	   nischmod a+r object

      Deny create and modify privileges to group and unauthenticated clients
      (nobody):

	   nischmod gn-cm object

      Set a complex set of permissions for an object:

	   nischmod o=rmcd,g=rm,w=rc,n=r object

      Set the permissions of an entry in the password table so that the
      group owner can modify them:

	   nischmod g+m '[uid=55],passwd.org_dir'

      Change the permissions of a linked object:

	   nischmod -L w+mr linkname

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    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)).

 RETURN VALUE
      nischmod returns 0 on success and 1 on failure.
