NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypxfr - get a YP map from YP server

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypxfr [-cf] [-d domain] [-h host] [-s domain] [-C  tid  prog
ipadd port]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     ypxfr  is the utility in YP that transfers maps to the local

     Since the YP master transfers a map when it has changed,  an
YP slave
     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
process.  Useful
             if ypserv isn't running localy to avoid timeout message.

     -f       Force  map  transfer,  even if version of master is
older than local

     -d domain
             Don't use default domain, use the specified  domain.

     -h host
             Get map from host instead of the maps master host.

     -s domain
             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.
