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]

       kas d -na <name of user>
           [-a <admin principal to use for authentication>]
           [-p <admin password>] [-c <cell name>]
           [-s <explicit list of authentication servers>+] [-no] [-h]

       kas rm -na <name of user>
           [-a <admin principal to use for authentication>]
           [-p <admin password>] [-c <cell name>]
           [-s <explicit list of authentication servers>+] [-no] [-h]

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 kas(8).

       -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 kas(8).

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

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

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

       -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.
