ypset -- tell ypbind(8) which NIS server process to use
ypset [-h host] [-d domain] server
ypset tells the ypbind(8) process on the current machine which NIS server
process to communicate with. If server is down or is not running a NIS
server process, it is not discovered until a NIS client process attempts
to access a NIS map, at which time ypbind(8) tests the binding and takes
ypset is most useful for binding a NIS client that is not on the same
broadcast network as the closest NIS server, but can also be used for
debugging a local network's NIS configuration, testing specific NIS
client programs, or binding to a specific server when there are many
servers on the local network supplying NIS maps.
The options are as follows:
Set the NIS binding on host instead of the local machine.
Use the NIS domain domain instead of the default domain as
returned by domainname(1).
