       nischmod - change access rights on a NIS+ object

       nischmod [-AfLP] mode name...

       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.

       Unlike the system chmod(1) command, this command does not accept an octal notation.

       The following options are supported:

       -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.

       Example 1 Using the nischmod Command

       This  example  gives everyone read access to an object. (that is, access for owner, group,
       and all).

	 example% nischmod a+r object

       This example denies create and modify privileges to   group  and  unauthenticated  clients

	 example% nischmod gn-cm object

       In this example, a complex set of permissions are set for an object.

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

       This  example  sets  the  permissions  of an entry in the password table so that the group
       owner can modify them.

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

       The next example changes the permissions of a linked object.

	 example% nischmod -L w+mr linkname

       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.

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWnisu			   |

       chmod(1),    NIS+(1),	nischgrp(1),	nischown(1),	 nisdefaults(1),     nismatch(1),
       nis_objects(3NSL), attributes(5)

       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
       information, visit http://www.sun.com/directory/nisplus/transition.html.
