pts_delete - Deletes a Protection Service entry
pts delete -nameorid <user or group name or id>+ [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-force] [-help] [-auth] [-encrypt [<yes|no>]] [-config <configuration file>]
The pts delete command requests the Protection Service to remove each entry specified by the -nameorid argument. Deleting entries affects other parts of the system in various ways:
The AUN of deleted users and AGN of deleted groups are not removed from access control lists (ACLs). As they are no longer known to the Protection Sevice, commands such as fs listacl will display their entries as numbers. To remove these obsolete entries from ACLs, use the fs cleanacl command.
Deleting a user, machine or network entry removes it from the membership list of any group to which it belonged.
Deleting a group entry removes it from the membership list of any user, machine or network entry that belonged to the group, and also increments the group-creation quota of the group's creator by one, even if the creator no longer owns the group.
To remove a user, machine or network from a group without actually deleting the entry, use the pts removeuser command.
Specifies the name or AFS UID of each user, the name or AFS GID of each group, or the IP address (complete or wildcard-style) or AFS UID of each machine. It is acceptable to mix users, machines, and groups on the same command line, as well as names (IP addresses for machines) and IDs. Precede the GID of each group with a hyphen to indicate that it is negative.
Use the calling user's tokens to communicate with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).
Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see pts(1).
Sets the location of the configuration file to be used. The default file is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf. For more details, see pts(1).
Enables or disables encryption for any communication with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).
Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error.
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileEx file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see pts(1).
Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more details, see pts(1).
The following example deletes the user entries
% pts delete pat terry
The following example deletes the Protection Service entry of the group with AGN -215.
% pts delete -215
The issuer must belong to the
system:administrators group to delete user and machine entries. To delete group entries, the issuer must either own the group or belong to the
fs_cleanacl(1), fs_listacl(1), pts(1), pts_removeuser(1)
