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

SYNOPSIS

       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.
