RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for ypset (redhat section 8)

ypset(8)			     System Manager's Manual				 ypset(8)

NAME
       ypset - bind ypbind to a particular NIS server

SYNOPSYS
       ypset [ -d domain ] [ -h hostname ] server

DESCRIPTION
       In   order   to	run  ypset, ypbind must be initiated with the -ypset or -ypsetme options.
       See ypbind(8).  ypset tells ypbind to get NIS services for the specified domain	from  the
       ypserv(8) process running on server.

       In  cases  where several hosts on the local net are supplying NIS services, it is possible
       for ypbind to rebind to another host even while you attempt to find out if the ypset oper-
       ation succeeded. For example, you can type:

       example% ypset host1
       example% ypwhich
       host2
       which can be confusing. This is a function of the NIS subsystem's attempt to know always a
       running NIS server, and occurs when host1 does not respond to ypbind  because  it  is  not
       running ypserv (or is overloaded), and host2, running ypserv, gets the binding.
       Server  indicates  the  NIS  server  to bind to,  and must be specified as a name or an IP
       address. This will work only if the node has a current valid binding  for  the  domain  in
       question, and ypbind has been set to allow use of ypset.  In most  cases, server should be
       specified as an IP address.
OPTIONS
       -d domain
	      Specify a domain other than the default domain as returned by domainname(1).
       -h hostname
	      Set the NIS binding on host hostname
	       instead of the local machine.
