NAME
     ypset -- tell ypbind(8) which NIS server process to use

SYNOPSIS
     ypset [-h host] [-d domain] server

DESCRIPTION
     ypset tells the ypbind(8) process on the current machine which NIS server process to commu-
     nicate with.  If server is down or is not running a NIS server process, it is not discovered
     until a NIS client process attempts to access a NIS map, at which time ypbind(8) tests the
     binding and takes appropriate action.

     ypset is most useful for binding a NIS client that is not on the same broadcast network as
     the closest NIS server, but can also be used for debugging a local network's NIS configura-
     tion, testing specific NIS client programs, or binding to a specific server when there are
     many servers on the local network supplying NIS maps.

     The options are as follows:

     -h host
	     Set the NIS binding on host instead of the local machine.

     -d domain
	     Use the NIS domain domain instead of the default domain as returned by
	     domainname(1).
