Delete Remote User Authorizations
The netu utility lets you delete one or several authorizations at a time. When you select the delete operation, netu asks for the values that comprise the authorization and deletes any and all authorizations that match those values. To delete a single authorization, all the values must match. If the match is not exact, the authorization is not deleted. To delete multiple authorizations, use the wild card character (*), which matches any value.
If you are unsure of the values for the authorization that you want to delete, use the “show” operation to check the values before you delete them. For instructions on using the show operation, see Retrieve Remote User Authorizations (see page Retrieve Remote User Authorizations).
To delete more than one authorization in one operation, use an asterisk in response to the prompts asking for the remote user name. The asterisk is a wild card character that matches any value. For example, assume that you want to delete all of your private user authorizations from “napoleon” that are associated with the account having the userid “tommy” on “josephine.” To do this, run netu from “napoleon,” selecting A and the del operation. Respond to the prompts in this manner:
Enter Private or Global (P): <Enter>
Enter the remote vnode name: *
Enter the remote user name: tommy
When you have completed the procedure, you deleted all of the private user authorizations for the account “tommy.” If you have defined other remote user authorizations to “josephine” through a different account, these remain undeleted.
Only a user with Ingres privileges can delete global authorizations.
