SUMMARY:deleting a user from passwd table

My syntax was wrong.

Here is what worked for me thanks to Daryl and Derek and Kevin.

To delete a users NIS+ account from the command line
# nistbladm -r name=paulac passwd.org_dir
To delete their home directory 
# nistbladm -r key=paulac auto_home.org_dir 

My original question was:

I'm trying to delete a users account from the NIS + passwd table
and I'm doing this from the NIS+ server directly but get this error

nistbladm -r '[key=paulac]' passwd.org_dir
: NIS+ servers unreachable.

The user who I'm trying to delete is paulac.

I can delete using the gui but not command line.
Is my syntax ok? What would cause this?
