/etc/yp.conf - NIS binding configuration file


   The  file  /etc/yp.conf  is  read  from  ypbind(8)  at  startup or when
   receiving signal SIGHUP.  The entries are used for the initial binding.
   Valid entries are

   domain nisdomain server hostname
          Use  server  hostname  for the domain nisdomain.  You could have
          more then one entry of this type for a single domain.

   domain nisdomain broadcast
          Use broadcast on the local net for domain nisdomain.

   domain nisdomain slp
          Query the local running SLP server for hosts running ypserv  and
          distributing  nisdomain.   This  option  is  only  available, if
          ypbind was compiled with SLP support.

   ypserver hostname
          Use server hostname for the local domain.

          If no other server is given or all of them  are  not  reachable,
          try a broadcast call for the default domain to find a server.

   If  for  a  specific  domain  the broadcast option and fixed server are
   given, ypbind-mt tries at first the given servers before  falling  back
   to broadcasting for a running server.




   ypbind-mt was written by Thorsten Kukuk <kukuk@suse.de>.
