System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (NIS+)

Specifying Non-Default Security Values at Creation Time in NIS+

You can specify different (that is, nondefault) access rights, owner, and group, any time that you create an NIS+ object or table entry with any of the following NIS+ commands:

To specify security values other than the default values, insert the -D option into the syntax of those commands, as described in Specifying NIS+ Access Rights in Commands.

As when setting defaults, you can combine two or more arguments into one line. Remember that column and entry's owner and group are always the same as the table, so you cannot override them.

For example, to use the nismkdir command to create a directory and override the default access right by granting the owner only read rights you would type:

client% nismkdir -D access=o+r
