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).
