ypwhich -- return hostname of NIS server of map master
ypwhich [-d domain] [[-h] host] [-T]
ypwhich [-d domain] [-h host] [-f] [-t] [-T] -m [mname]
ypwhich tells which NIS server supplies NIS services to a client, or
which is the master for a map. If invoked without arguments, it gives
the NIS server for the local machine. If host is specified, that machine
is queried to find out which NIS server it is using.
The options are as follows:
-d domain Specify a domain other than the default domain.
-h host Specify a host other than localhost to query for information.
-f When used in conjunction with -m, force ypwhich to query host
directly, without using the local copy of ypbind(8).
-t Inhibit translation of map nicknames to their corresponding
-T Use TCP protocol instead of UDP.
-m [mname] Find the master NIS server for the named map. mname can be a
map name or nickname. If mname is omitted, ypwhich will pro-
duce a list of available maps.
-x Display the map nickname table.
ypwhich exits with a non-zero exit code if -m is used, and there was a
problem in determining the map's master.
