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


NAME
ypset -- tell ypbind(8) which NIS server process to use
SYNOPSIS
ypset [-h host] [-d domain] server
DESCRIPTION
ypset tells the ypbind(8) process on the current machine which NIS server process to communicate with. If server is down or is not running a NIS server process, it is not discovered until a NIS client process attempts to access a NIS map, at which time ypbind(8) tests the binding and takes appropriate action. ypset is most useful for binding a NIS client that is not on the same broadcast network as the closest NIS server, but can also be used for debugging a local network's NIS configuration, testing specific NIS client programs, or binding to a specific server when there are many servers on the local network supplying NIS maps. The options are as follows: -h host Set the NIS binding on host instead of the local machine. -d domain Use the NIS domain domain instead of the default domain as returned by domainname(1).
