NAME

yppoll - determine which version of a Network Information Service (NIS) map is at a master NIS server host.  

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

The yppoll command asks a ypserv process for the domain, order number, and master NIS server (also known as map parameters) associated with the named map. If the server is a v.1 NIS protocol server, yppoll uses the older protocol to communicate with ypserv and uses the older diagnostic messages if a failure occurs.  

FLAGS

-h host
Ask the ypserv process at host about the map parameters (order number and master server for the map). If host is not specified, the NIS server for the local host is used. That is, the default host is the one returned by ypwhich(1).
-d domain
Use domain instead of the default domain.
