|System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (NIS+)|
This chapter describes how to use the NIS+ directory administration commands to remove NIS+ from clients, servers, and the namespace as a whole.
For information on disassociating an NIS+ replica server from a directory so that it no longer acts as a replica for that domain, see nisrmdir Command.
Note - NIS+ might not be supported in a future release. Tools to aid the migration from NIS+ to LDAP are available as of the Solaris 9 release. For more information, see System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS, and LDAP) and visit NIS+ End-of-Feature (EOF) Announcement FAQ.
The NIS+ service is managed by the Service Management Facility. Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or restarting, can be performed by using the svcadm command. See NIS+ and the Service Management Facility for more information about using SMF with NIS+. For an overview of SMF, refer to Chapter 18, Managing Services (Overview), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration. Also refer to the svcadm(1M) and svcs(1) man pages for more details.
