NAME

       yptest - test NIS configuration


SYNOPSYS

       yptest [-q] [-d domain] [-h host] [-m map] [-u user]



DESCRIPTION

       yptest calls various NIS functions to check if the NIS configuration is
       correct and works as expected.



OPTIONS

       -q     Be quiet, don’t print messages

       -d domainname
              Specify a domain other than the default domain  as  returned  by
              domainname(1).  This option is not supported by all tests.

       -h hostname
              Query  ypserv  on  hostname  instead  of the currently used one.
              This option is not supported by all tests.

       -m map Use the map map for the tests instead  of  passwd.byname.   This
              option should be used if the default map does not exist.

       -u user
              Use  the  account user instead of nobody.  This option should be
              used if the nobody account does not exist in the  map  used  for
              testing (passwd.byname or the one given with the -m option).
