    Command:

    ypset

    
    
    

    SYNOPSYS

           ypset [ -d domain ] [ -h hostname ] server
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           In   order   to  run ypset, ypbind must be initiated with the -ypset or
           -ypsetme options.  See ypbind(8).  ypset tells ypbind to get  NIS  ser-
           vices  for  the  specified domain from the ypserv(8) process running on
           server.
    
           In cases where several hosts on the local net are  supplying  NIS  ser-
           vices,  it  is possible for ypbind to rebind to another host even while
           you attempt to find out if the ypset operation succeeded. For  example,
           you can type:
    
           example% ypset host1
           example% ypwhich
           host2
    
           which  can  be  confusing. This is a function of the NIS subsys-
           tem's attempt to know always a running NIS  server,  and  occurs
           when  host1 does not respond to ypbind because it is not running
           ypserv (or is overloaded), and host2, running ypserv,  gets  the
           binding.
    
           Server  indicates the NIS server to bind to,  and must be speci-
           fied as a name or an IP address. This will work only if the node
           has  a  current  valid  binding  for the domain in question, and
           ypbind has been set to allow use  of  ypset.   In  most   cases,
           server should be specified as an IP address.
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -d domain
                  Specify  a  domain  other  than  the  default  domain  as
                  returned by domainname(1).
           -h hostname
                  Set the NIS binding on host hostname
                   instead of the local machine.
