yppoll -- get version of a YP map from YP server SYNOPSIS
yppoll [-h host] [-d domainname] mapname DESCRIPTION
yppoll is used to get information of a maps order number and master server. This utility is useful when determining if different servers have the same version of a map. yppoll normally talks with the default ypserv(8) process, but by using the -h option it is possible to talk with a specific server. The options are as follows: -d domain Don't use default domain, use the specified domain. -h host Get map information from host instead of the default YP server. SEE ALSO
