NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     yppoll -- ask version of YP map from YP server

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     yppoll [-h host] [-d domain] mapname

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The yppoll utility asks a YP server process for the order number and
     which host is the master server for mapname.

     The options are as follows:

     -h host
	     Ask the YP server process running on host for information about
	     mapname.  If host is not specified, the server polled is the
	     default server returned by ypwhich(1).

     -d domain
	     Use the YP domain domain instead of the default domain as
	     returned by domainname(1).

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     domainname(1), ypcat(1), ypmatch(1), ypwhich(1), yp(8), ypbind(8),
