NAME

       domainname - set or display name of current domain
       nisdomainname - set or display name of current NIS(YP) domain
       ypdomainname - set or display name of current NIS(YP) domain

SYNOPSYS

       domainname [ domain ]
       nisdomainname [ domain ]
       ypdomainname [ domain ]

DESCRIPTION

       Without   an  argument, domainname displays the name of the current NIS
       domainname  of  the  system.   domainname  uses  the   getdomainname(2)
       function for getting the domainname, nisdomainname and ypdomainname are
       using yp_get_default_domain(3).

       Only the super-user can set the name of the domain  by  specifying  the
       new domain as an argument. All three programs uses setdomainname(2) for
       this. Bear in mind, that already running programs may continue  to  use
       the old domainname.
