YPWHICH(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		    YPWHICH(1)

NAME
     ypwhich --	return hostname	of NIS server of map master

SYNOPSIS
     ypwhich [-d domain] [[-t] -m [mname] | host]
     ypwhich -x

DESCRIPTION
     The ypwhich utility tells which NIS server	supplies NIS services to a
     client, or	which is the master for	a map.	If invoked without arguments,
     it	gives the NIS server for the local machine.  If	host is	specified,
     that machine is queried to	find out which NIS server it is	using.

     The options are as	follows:

     -d	domain
	     Specify a domain other than the default domain.

     -t	     Inhibit translation of map	nicknames to their corresponding map
	     names.

     -m	[mname]
	     Find the master NIS server	for the	named map.  No host may	be
	     specified with the	-m option.  The	mname argument can be a	map
	     name or nickname.	If mname is omitted, ypwhich will produce a
	     list of available maps.

     -x	     Display the map nickname table.
