 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 running.

    Options
      -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, an nischmod(1) is attempted and the removal retried.  If
	   the command fails, it fails silently.

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

	   nisrm foo bar baz

 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
      nisrm returns 0 on success and 1 on failure.

 AUTHOR
      nisrm was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.

 NOTES
      This command will not remove directories (see nisrmdir(1)) nor will it
      remove non-empty tables (see nistbladm(1)).
