YPXFR(8)                NetBSD System Manager's Manual                YPXFR(8)

NAME
     ypxfr -- get a NIS map from NIS server

SYNOPSIS
     ypxfr [-bcf] [-C tid prog ipadd port] [-d domain] [-h host] [-s domain]
           mapname

DESCRIPTION
     ypxfr is the utility in NIS that transfers maps to the local host.

     The options are as follows:

     -b      Preserve the entry in the database informing a NIS server to use
             DNS to get information about unknown hosts. This option will only
             have effect on the maps hosts.byname and hosts.byaddr.

     -c      Don't send a "Clear current map" to local ypserv process. Useful
             if ypserv isn't running locally to avoid timeout message.

     -C tid prog ipadd port
             This option is only used by ypserv.  This is to open communica-
             tion with yppush on another host.

     -d domain
             Don't use default domain, use the specified domain.

     -f      Force map transfer, even if the master's version is older than
             the local copy.

     -h host
             Get map from host instead of the maps master host.

     -s domain
             Specify a source domain other than the target domain.
