 yppoll(1M)                                                       yppoll(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      yppoll - query NIS server for information about NIS map

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/yppoll [-h host] [-d domain] mapname

    Remarks    [Toc]    [Back]
      The Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Yellow
      Pages (yp).  Although the name has changed, the functionality of the
      service remains the same.

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      yppoll asks a Network Information Service (NIS) server process (see
      ypserv(1M)) to return the order number (the time in seconds when the
      map was built - time(2)) and master NIS server's host name for a NIS
      database named mapname.  yppoll then writes them to standard output.
      If the server uses Version 1 NIS protocol, yppoll uses this older
      protocol to communicate with it.  yppoll also prints the old style
      diagnostic messages in case of failure.

      See ypfiles(4) and ypserv(1M) for an overview of Network Information

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      -h host        Ask the ypserv process on host to return the map
                     information (see ypserv(1M)).  If -h host is not
                     specified, the host returned by ypwhich is used (see

      -d domain      Use domain instead of the domain returned by domainname
                     (see domainname(1)).
