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. This command will not remove directories. See nisrmdir(1). Nor will it remove non-empty tables. See nistbladm(1).
OPTIONS
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 unexpected objects. -f Force. The removal is attempted, and if it fails for permission reasons, a nischmod(1) is attempted and the removal retried. If the command fails, it fails silently.
OPERANDS
The following operand is supported: name A NIS+ named object.
EXAMPLES
Example 1 Using the nisrm Command Remove the objects foo, bar, and baz from the namespace: example% nisrm foo bar baz
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).
