       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  supply­
       ing  NIS  services, it is possible for ypbind to rebind to
       another host even while you attempt to  find  out  if  the
       ypset operation 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

       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
