Testing NIS slave server

Hi guys,

In my Sol-10 i setup NIS server following the oracle doc and setup a Linux as NIS client all went ok.

I added another Sol-10 and configure it as a NIS slave server following the oracle doc again. and added the server on the yp.conf on my NIS client

How do i test if my NIS slave server is working?

I tried shutting down the NIS master server but in NIS client ypwhich still shows the maps on my NIS master.

Code:
# ypcat -k ypservers

Did you configure client to use both servers when you setup client with
Code:
# ypinit -c

?
