ypset
tell ypbind(8) which NIS server process to use

ypset [
-h host
] [
-d domain
] server

The ypset utility tells the ypbind(8) process on the current machine which NIS server process to communicate with. If server is down or is not running a NIS server process, it is not discovered until a NIS client process attempts to access a NIS map, at which time ypbind(8) tests the binding and takes appropriate action.
The ypset utility is most useful for binding a NIS client that is not on the same broadcast network as the closest NIS server, but can also be used for debugging a local network's NIS configuration, testing specific NIS client programs, or binding to a specific server when there are many servers on the local network supplying NIS maps.
The options are as follows:
domain
Use the NIS domain domain instead of the default domain as returned by domainname(1).
host
Set the NIS binding on host instead of the local machine.

domainname(1), ypcat(1), ypmatch(1), yp(8), ypbind(8)
