SUMMARY: NIS+ Ghost entry

Thanks everyone for your information regards the ghost NIS entries.

THe culprit it seems is that the replica is a different Solaris versio and
causes discrepancies.

I have taken the culprit offline and all is OK for now. I plan to upgrade
the replica box to the same versio and then resync the NIS tables.

Thanks all for your information!

   I've had very poor luck with removing or changing specific NIS+
   entries.  We use the script below when modifying a table.
