YPWHICH(1)                 OpenBSD Reference Manual                 YPWHICH(1)

     ypwhich - return hostname of YP server of map master

     ypwhich [-d domain] [[-h host] [-t] -m [mname] | host]
     ypwhich -x

     ypwhich tells which YP server supplies YP services to a client, or which
     is the master for a map.  If invoked without arguments, it gives the YP
     server for the local machine.  If host is specified, that machine is
     queried to find out which YP server it is using.

     The options are as follows:

     -d domain
             Specify a domain other than the default domain.

     -h host
             Specify which host to ask when -m is given.

     -t      Inhibit translation of map nicknames to their corresponding map

     -m [mname]
             Find the master YP server for the named map.  No host may be
             specified with the -m option.  Mname can be a map name or nick-
             name.  If mname is omitted, ypwhich will produce a list of avail-
             able maps.

     -x      Display the map nickname table.
