       ypset - bind ypbind to a particular NIS server

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

       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
       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.
       -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.

       ypset  is  part	of  the  yp-tools  package,  which  was  written by Thorsten Kukuk
