       nischgrp - change the group owner of a NIS+ object

       nischgrp [-AfLP] group name...

       nischgrp  changes  the group owner of the NIS+ objects or entries specified by name to the
       specified NIS+ group. Entries are specified using  indexed  names  (see	nismatch(1)).  If
       group  is  not a fully qualified  NIS+ group name, it will be resolved using the directory
       search path (see nisdefaults(1)).

       The only restriction on changing an object's group owner is  that  you  must  have  modify
       permissions for the object.

       This command will fail if the master NIS+ server is not running.

       The  NIS+ server will check the validity of the group name prior to effecting the  modifi-

       The following options are supported:

       -A    Modify all entries in all tables in the concatenation path  that  match  the  search
	     criterion 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 group owner of the linked object or entries rather than
	     the group owner of the link itself.

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

       Example 1 Using the nischgrp Command

       The following two examples show how to change the group owner of an object to a group in a
       different domain, and how to change it to a group in the local domain, respectively.

	 example% nischgrp newgroup.remote.domain. object
	 example% nischgrp my-buds object

       This example shows how to change the group owner for a password entry.

	 example% nischgrp admins '[uid=99],passwd.org_dir'

       In the previous example, admins is a NIS+ group in the same domain.

       The  next  two  examples  change  the group owner of the object or entries pointed to by a
       link, and the group owner of all entries in the hobbies table.

	 example% nischgrp -L my-buds linkname
	 example% nischgrp my-buds '[],hobbies'

       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.

       NIS+  might  not be supported in future releases of the Solaris operating system. Tools to
       aid the migration from NIS+ to LDAP are available in the current Solaris release. For more
