NAME

       kas delete - Deletes an entry from the Authentication Database

SYNOPSIS

       kas delete << -name <name of user >>>
           << [-admin_username <admin principal to use for authentication] >>>
           << [-password_for_admin <admin password] >>> << [-cell <cell name]
       >>>
           << [-servers <explicit list of authentication servers+] >>>
           [-noauth] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

       The kas delete command removes from the Authentication Database the
       user entry named by the -name argument. The indicated user becomes
       unable to log in, or the indicated server becomes unreachable (because
       the Authentication Server’s Ticket Granting Service module no longer
       has a key with which to seal tickets for the server).

OPTIONS

       -name <name of user>
           Names the Authentication Database entry to delete.

       -admin_username <admin principal>
           Specifies the user identity under which to authenticate with the
           Authentication Server for execution of the command. For more
           details, see the kas(8) manpage.

       -password_for_admin <admin password>
           Specifies the password of the command’s issuer. If it is omitted
           (as recommended), the kas command interpreter prompts for it and
           does not echo it visibly. For more details, see the kas(8) manpage.

       -cell <cell name>
           Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see
           the kas(8) manpage.

       -servers <authentication servers>+
           Names each machine running an Authentication Server with which to
           establish a connection. For more details, see the kas(8) manpage.

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more
           details, see the kas(8) manpage.

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

EXAMPLES

       The following example shows the administrative user admin entering
       interactive mode to delete three accounts.

          % kas
          Password for admin:
          ka> delete smith
          ka> delete pat
          ka> delete terry

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       The issuer must have the ADMIN flag set on his or her Authentication
       Database entry.
