NAME

pts_delete - Deletes a Protection Service entry

SYNOPSIS

pts delete -nameorid <user or group name or id>+ [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-force] [-help] [-auth] [-encrypt [<yes|no>]] [-config <configuration file>]

DESCRIPTION

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:

To remove a user, machine or network from a group without actually deleting the entry, use the pts removeuser command.

OPTIONS

-nameorid <user or group name or id>+

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.

-auth

Use the calling user's tokens to communicate with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).

-cell <cell name>

Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see pts(1).

-config <configuration file>

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).

-encrypt [<yes|no>]

Enables or disables encryption for any communication with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).

-force

Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error.

-help

Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

-localauth

Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see pts(1).

-noauth

Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more details, see pts(1).

EXAMPLES

The following example deletes the user entries pat and terry:

   % pts delete pat terry

The following example deletes the Protection Service entry of the group with AGN -215.

   % pts delete -215

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

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 system:administrators group.
