yppoll(8)                 BSD System Manager's Manual                yppoll(8)


NAME

     yppoll -- get version of a YP map from YP server


SYNOPSIS

     yppoll [-h host] [-d domainname] mapname


DESCRIPTION

     yppoll is used to get information of a maps order number and master
     server.  This utility is useful when determining if different servers
     have the same version of a map.  yppoll normally talks with the default
     ypserv(8) process, but by using the -h option it is possible to talk with
     a specific server.

     The options are as follows:

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

     -h host
             Get map information from host instead of the default YP server.
