NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     yppoll - ask version of YP map from YP server

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     yppoll 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).
