NAME

pts_removeuser - Removes a user from a Protection group

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

The pts removeuser command removes each user, machine, network or group named by the -user argument from each group named by the -group argument.

To add users, machines, networks, or groups to a group, use the pts adduser command. To list group membership, use the pts membership command. To remove members from a group and delete the group's entry completely in a single step, use the pts delete command.

CAUTIONS

Each user's or machines' group membership is compiled when he or she authenticates to a File Server. Any users or machines who have valid tokens when they are removed from a group retain the privileges extended to that group's members until their tokens expire or they reauthenticate.

OPTIONS

-user <user name>+

Specifies the name of each user, machine, network or group entry to remove.

-group <group name>+

Names each group from which to remove members.

-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/KeyFileEx 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 removes user smith from the groups staff and staff:finance. Note that no switch names are necessary because only a single instance is provided for the first argument (the username).

   % pts removeuser smith staff staff:finance

The following example removes three network entries from the group bin-prot:

   % pts removeuser -user 10.255.0.0 122.168.105.0 172.16.106.0 -group bin-prot

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

The required privilege depends on the setting of the (R) privacy flag on the Protection group named by the -group argument (use the pts examine command to display the flags):

(It is not possible to set the flag to uppercase R.)
