       ypwhich - return name of NIS server or map master


       ypwhich [ -d domain ] [ -Vn ] [ hostname ]
       ypwhich [ -d domain ] [ -t ] -m [ mname ]
       ypwhich -x


       ypwhich returns the name of the NIS server that supplies the NIS services to a NIS client,
       or which is the master for a map.  If invoked without arguments, it gives the  NIS  server
       for the local machine. If hostname is specified, that machine is queried to find out which
       NIS master it is using.


       -d domain
              Specify a domain other than the default domain.

       -t     This option inhibits map nickname translation.

       -m mname
              Find the master NIS server for a map.  No hostname can be  specified  with  the  -m
              option.   mname  can  be  a  mapname  or  nickname for a map.  If mname is omitted,
              ypwhich will produce a list of available maps.

       -x     Display the map nickname translation table.

       -Vn    Version of ypbind(8), V3 is default. Use V2 for NIS clients not supporting IPv6.
