The nistbladm -u option allows you to add additional column access rights to an existing table column with the nistbladm command. To use this option you must have modify rights to the table column. To add additional column rights use:
nistbladm -u [column=access,...],tablename
column is the name of the column.
access is the access rights for this column that you specify using the syntax described in Specifying NIS+ Access Rights in Commands.
... indicates that you can specify rights for multiple columns.
tablename is the fully qualified name of the table you are creating.
Use one column=access pair for each column whose rights you want to update. To update multiple columns, separate them with commas and enclose the entire set with square brackets:
[column=access, column=access, column=access]
The full syntax of this option is described in Chapter 2, NIS+: An Introduction.
The example below adds read and modify rights to the group for the name and addr columns in the hosts.org_dir.doc.com. table.
client% nistbladm -u `[name=g+rm,addr=g+rm],hosts.org_dir..doc.com.'
