YPWHICH(1)							    YPWHICH(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypwhich - print the NIS server or map master hostname

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypwhich [ -d domain ] [ -V1 | -V2 ] [ hostname ]
     ypwhich [ -t ] [ -d domain	] -m [ mname ]
     ypwhich -x

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypwhich tells which network information service (NIS) server supplies NIS
     services to an NIS	client,	or which server	is the master for a map.  If
     invoked without arguments,	it prints the NIS server for the local
     machine.  If hostname is specified, that machine is queried to find out
     which NIS server it is using.

     Refer to ypfiles(4) and nis(1M) for an overview of	NIS.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -d	domain
	     Use domain	instead	of the default domain.

     -m	mname
	     Find the master NIS server	for a map.  No hostname	can be
	     specified with -m.	 mname can be a	mapname, or a nickname for a
	     map. If mname is not specified, ypwhich lists the names of	all
	     the maps and their	master server.

     -t	     Inhibit nickname translation.  This option	is useful if there is
	     a mapname identical to a nickname,	which is not true of any
	     IRIX-supplied map.

     -x	     Display the map nickname table.  This lists the nicknames
	     (mnames) the command knows	of, and	indicates the mapname
	     associated	with each nickname.
