Removes a NIS+ user account.
The nisrmuser command removes the NIS+ user account identified by the Name parameter. This command removes a user's attributes without removing the user's home directory and files. The user name must already exist as a string of 8 bytes or less.
Only the root user can remove administrative users. Administrative users are those users with admin=true set in the /etc/security/user file.
You can use the Web-based System Manager Users application or System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) to execute this command within the NIS+ administration section.
Access Control: This command should grant execute (x) access only to the root user and members of the security group. This command should be installed as a program in the trusted computing base (TCB). The command should be owned by the root user with the setuid (SUID) bit set.
