       ypinit - NIS database install and build program

       /usr/lib/yp/ypinit [ -m ] [ -s master_name ]

       ypinit  builds  the  domain  subdirectory of /var/yp for the current default domain. After
       building the domain subdirectory, ypinit builds a complete set of administrative maps  for
       your  system  and places them in this directory. The first map created by ypinit -m is the
       ypservers map. You should run it as  root  on  the  hosts,  which  should  be  the  master
       ypserver.  You should have only one master server per NIS domain.

       All  databases are built from scratch, either from information available to the program at
       runtime, or from the ASCII data base files in /etc.  These files are  listed  below  under

       An NIS database on a slave server is set up by copying an existing database from a running
       server.	The master_name argument should be the hostname of an NIS server (either the mas-
       ter server for all the maps, or a server on which the data base is up-to-date and stable).

       -m     If the local host is the NIS master.

       -s     Set up a slave server with the database from master_name

       There isn't a good error handling at the moment.
