NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ypmatch  - print the value of one or more keys from an NIS

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       ypmatch [-d domain] [-k] [-t] key... mname

       ypmatch -x

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Displays key values for specified domain.   Displays  key,
       followed  by  a  colon (:), before displaying value of the
       key. This is useful if the keys are not duplicated in  the
       returned  values, or if the number of specified keys is so
       large that the output is confusing.  Inhibits  translation
       of  nickname  to  mapname.  For  example, ypmatch -t zippy

              fails because there is no map named  passwd,  while
              ypmatch zippy passwd

              succeeds  because  ypmatch translates it to ypmatch
              zippy passwd.byname.  Displays map nickname  table.
              This  option  tells  ypmatch  to list the nicknames
              (mnames) with their associated mapnames.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The ypmatch command prints the values associated with  one
       or  more  keys  from the Network Information Service (NIS)
       map (database) specified by mname, which may be  either  a
       mapname or a map nickname.

       Multiple  keys  can be specified. After the key values and
       the map name have been specified, ypmatch searches the map
       for  all of the specified keys. The specified keys must be
       exact values in terms of capitalization  and  length.  The
       ypmatch  command does not have a pattern matching capability.
 If ypmatch cannot match a key, it produces a diagnostic

       The  default list of mapnames served by NIS is as follows:
       passwd.byname,  passwd.byuid,  group.byname,  group.byuid,
       hosts.byname,    hosts.byaddr,    networks.byname,    networks.byaddr,
   services.byname,   rpc.bynumber,    protocols.byname,
   protocols.bynumber,  netgroup.byuser,  netgroup.byhost,

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following are sample command lines that illustrate how
       to  use  the ypmatch command to access information in each
       of the maps:

       Mapname              Sample command
       passwd.byname        ypmatch user1 passwd.byname
       passwd.byuid         ypmatch uid1 passwd.byuid
       group.byname         ypmatch group1 group.byname
       group.byuid          ypmatch gid1 group.bygid
       hosts.byname         ypmatch host1 host.byname

       hosts.byaddr         ypmatch hostaddr1 hosts.byaddr
       networks.byname      ypmatch network1 networks.byname
       networks.byaddr      ypmatch netaddr1 networks.byaddr
       services.byname      ypmatch servport/tcp services.byname
       rpc.bynumber         ypmatch rpcnum rpc.bynumber
       protocols.byname     ypmatch proto1 protocols.byname
       protocols.bynumber   ypmatch protonum1 protocols.bynumber
       netgroup.byuser      ypmatch user1 netgroup.byuser
       netgroup.byhost      ypmatch host1 netgroup.byhost
       mail.alias           ypmatch mailgroup1 mail.alias
