ypwhich(1)                BSD General Commands Manual               ypwhich(1)


NAME

     ypwhich -- return hostname of YP server of map master


SYNOPSIS

     ypwhich [-d domain] [[-t] -m [mname] | host]
     ypwhich -x


DESCRIPTION

     The ypwhich utility tells which YP server supplies YP services to a
     client, or which is the master for a map.  If invoked without arguments,
     it gives the YP server for the local machine.  If host is specified, that
     machine is queried to find out which YP server it is using.

     The options are as follows:

     -d domain
             Specify a domain other than the default domain.

     -t      Inhibit translation of map nicknames to their corresponding map
             names.

     -m [mname]
             Find the master YP server for the named map.  No host may be
             specified with the -m option.  The mname argument can be a map
             name or nickname.  If mname is omitted, ypwhich will produce a
             list of available maps.

     -x      Display the map nickname table.
