How to Remove a Member From an SMB Group

  1. Become an administrator.
  2. Remove a user from the SMB group.
    $ smbadm remove-member -m member-name [[-m member-name] ...] group-name

    member-name can be specified in the following ways:

    [domain-name\]username [domain-name/]username

    The domain name is the domain in which the user can be authenticated. By default, the domain name is the name of the domain that you joined.

    The backslash (\) is a shell special character and must be quoted. For instance, escape the backslash with another backslash: domain\\username. For more information about handling shell special characters, see the man page for your shell.

    For example, to remove user userone of the sales domain from the wsales group, type:

    $ smbadm remove-member -m sales\\userone wsales

    You can remove a local user from an SMB group in workgroup mode by specifying the Oracle Solaris user name rather than the domain name. For example, to remove local user userone of the solarsystem host from the wsales group, type:

    $ smbadm remove-member -m solarsystem\\userone wsales
