YPXFR(8)                    System Manager's Manual                   YPXFR(8)

     ypxfr - get a NIS map from NIS server

     ypxfr [-cf] [-C tid prog ipadd port] [-d domain] [-h host] [-s domain]

     ypxfr is the utility in NIS that transfers maps to the local host.

     The options are as follows:

     -c      Don't send a "Clear current map" to local ypserv process. Useful
             if ypserv isn't running locally to avoid timeout message.

     -C tid prog ipadd port
             This option is only used by ypserv.  This is to open
             communication with yppush on another host.

     -d domain
             Don't use default domain, use the specified domain.

     -f      Force map transfer, even if the master's version is older than
             the local copy.

     -h host
             Get map from host instead of the maps master host.

     -s domain
             Specify a source domain other than the target domain.
