Problem with NIS client

Hi All,

In my network infra, there is a NIS master server and many more NIS slave servers. Now, I want every client to set with master server and one possible slave server so that if master goes down, client could still get info from slave server. The servers will be listed on /var/yp/binding/domain.com/ypservers. Is it possible if master goes down, after restarting ypbind daemon, client can get connect to other slave server.
Please provide me the way to get it done.

Thanks,
Deepak Tiwari

NAME
ypwhich - return name of NIS server or map master SYNOPSIS
ypwhich [-d domain] [ [-t] -m [mname] | [-Vn] hostname] ypwhich -x DESCRIPTION
ypwhich returns the name of the NIS server that supplies the NIS name services to a NIS client, or which is the master for a map. If invoked without arguments, it gives the NIS server for the local machine. If hostname is specified, that machine is queried to find out which NIS master it is using. Refer to ypfiles(4) for an overview of the NIS name services. OPTIONS
-d domain Use domain instead of the default domain. -t This option inhibits map nickname translation. -m mname Find the master NIS server for a map. No hostname can be specified with -m. mname can be a mapname, or a nickname for a map. When mname is omitted, produce a list of available maps. -x Display the map nickname translation table. -Vn Version of ypbind, V3 is default. ATTRIBUTES
