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

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

DESCRIPTION
     ypset 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.

     ypset 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 de-
     bugging 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:

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

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