Solaris - Get Rid Of Unnecessary NIS+ Tables (Solaris 8/9)

It's always a good idea to clean up files or delete unused items when performing Solaris system maintenance, including Network Information Service Plus (NIS+) tables you aren't using.

You can delete an NIS+ table using the nistbladm command with the -d option with the following syntax, replacing the [table name] with the name of the table you're deleting:

  • nistbladm -d [table name]

One last note; you'll also need to have destroy rights in the directory.
