Removing Rights to an NIS+ Table Column

To remove access rights to a column in an NIS+ table, you use the -u option as described above in Adding Rights to an Existing NIS+ Table Column except that you subtract rights with a minus sign (rather than adding them with a plus sign).

The example below removes group's read and modify rights to the hostname column in the table.

client% nistbladm -u 'name=g-rm,'
