NAME
       ypwhich - return	name of	NIS server or map master

SYNOPSIS
       ypwhich [-d domain] [ [-t] -m  [mname] |	[-Vn] hostname]

       ypwhich -x

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

       Refer to	ypfiles(4) for an overview of the  NIS name services.

OPTIONS
       -d domain       Use domain instead of the default domain.

       -t	       This option inhibits map	nickname translation.

       -m mname	       Find  the master	NIS server for a map.  No hostname can
		       be specified with -m. mname can	be  a  mapname,	 or  a
		       nickname	 for  a	 map. When mname is omitted, produce a
		       list of available maps.

       -x	       Display the map nickname	translation table.

       -Vn	       Version of  ypbind, V3 is default.
