ypxfr - get a YP map from YP server
ypxfr [-cf] [-d domain] [-h host] [-s domain] [-C tid prog
ypxfr is the utility in YP that transfers maps to the local
Since the YP master transfers a map when it has changed, an
should check for missed maps regularly. This can be done
via an entry in
crontab(5). The scripts ypxfr_1perhour, ypxfr_2perday and
could be used for that.
The options are as follows:
-c Don't send a "Clear current map" to local ypserv
if ypserv isn't running localy to avoid timeout message.
-f Force map transfer, even if version of master is
older than local
Don't use default domain, use the specified domain.
Get map from host instead of the maps master host.
Specify a source domain other than the target domain.
-C tid prog ipadd port
This option is only used by ypserv. This is to open
with a yppush on another host.
