NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypwhich - return hostname of YP server or map master

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypwhich [-d domain] [[-h host] [-t] -m [mname] | host]
     ypwhich -x

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypwhich tells which YP server  supplies  YP  services  to  a
client, or which
     is  the  master for a map.  If invoked without arguments, it
gives the YP
     server for the local machine.  If host  is  specified,  that
machine is
     queried to find out which YP server it is using.

     The options are as follows:

     -d domain
             Specify a domain other than the default domain.

     -h host
             Specify which host to ask when -m is given.

     -t      Inhibit translation of map nicknames to their corresponding map

     -m [mname]
             Find the master YP server for  the  named  map.   No
host may be
             specified  with  the  -m option.  Mname can be a map
name or nickname.
  If mname is omitted, ypwhich will  produce  a
list of available

     -x      Display the map nickname table.
