nisrm(1) User Commands nisrm(1)
nisrm - remove NIS+ objects from the namespace
nisrm [-if] name...
The nisrm command removes NIS+ objects named name from the NIS+ names-
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:
-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 unex-
-f Force. The removal is attempted, and if it fails for permis-
sion reasons, a nischmod(1) is attempted and the removal
retried. If the command fails, it fails silently.
The following operand is supported:
name 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
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 nisde-
The following exit values are returned:
0 Successful operation.
1 Operation failed.
