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

NAME
     yppoll - ask version of YP map from YP server

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

DESCRIPTION
     yppoll 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 de-
             fault server returned by ypwhich(1).

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