NAME
     ypset -- tell ypbind(8) which NIS server process to use

SYNOPSIS
     ypset [-h host] [-d domain] server

DESCRIPTION
     The ypset utility 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 appropriate action.

     The ypset utility 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:

     -d	domain
	     Use the NIS domain	domain instead of the default domain as	re-
	     turned by domainname(1).

     -h	host
	     Set the NIS binding on host instead of the	local machine.
