YPPOLL(8)                 BSD System Manager's Manual                YPPOLL(8)

NAME
     yppoll -- ask version of YP map from YP server

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

DESCRIPTION
     The yppoll utility asks a YP server process for the order number and
     which host is the master server for mapname.

     The options are as follows:

     -h host
             Ask the YP server process running on host for information about
             mapname.  If host is not specified, the server polled is the
             default server returned by ypwhich(1).

     -d domain
             Use the YP domain domain instead of the default domain as
             returned by domainname(1).
