NAME

       yppoll - return version and master server of a NIS map

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       yppoll  queries ypserv(8) which host the NIS master server for a named map is and what the
       order number of this map is.

OPTIONS

       -h host
              Ask the NIS 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
              Specify a domain other than the default domain as returned by domainname(8).
