YPINIT(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual				YPINIT(8)

     ypinit -- initialize NIS subsystem

     ypinit -c [domainname] [-l server1,...,serverN]
     ypinit -m [domainname] [-l server1,...,serverN]
     ypinit -s master_server [domainname] [-l server1,...,serverN]

     ypinit initializes the files and directories that are required for a NIS client or server.

     If domainname isn't specified, the default domain (as returned by domainname(1)) is used.

     The following options are available:

     -c      Create a NIS client.  Initializes /var/yp/binding/<domain>.ypservers to contain a
	     list of ypservers for ypbind(8) to connect to.

     -l server1,...,serverN
	     Set the list of client servers from the command line rather than prompting for them
	     interactively.  The format is a comma separated list of server names with no spaces.

     -m      Create a master NIS server.  Generates map data from local files
	     (/etc/master.passwd, /etc/group, etc.).

     -s master_server
	     Create a slave server.  Downloads the maps from master_server, which should be the
	     active master NIS server.

     To rebuild or refresh the maps for the NIS domain <domain>, change to the /var/yp/<domain>
     directory and run make.

     /var/yp		 master NIS directory; contains the template makefiles.
     /var/yp/<domain>	 directory to store NIS maps for <domain>.
			 list of NIS servers to bind to.

     domainname(1), make(1), makedbm(8), mknetid(8), nis(8), stdethers(8), stdhosts(8),
     ypbind(8), yppush(8), ypserv(8)
