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


ypxfr, ypxfr_1perhour, ypxfr_1perday, ypxfr_2perdayget a YP map from YP server


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


ypxfr is the utility in YP that transfers maps to the local host.
Since the YP master transfers a map when it has changed, an YP slave should check for missed maps regularly. This can be done via an entry in crontab(5). The scripts ypxfr_1perhour, ypxfr_2perday and ypxfr_1perday could be used for that.
The options are as follows:
-C tid prog ipadd port
This option is only used by ypserv. This is to open communication with a yppush on another host.
Don't send a "Clear current map" to local ypserv process. Useful if ypserv isn't running locally to avoid timeout message.
-d domain
Don't use default domain, use the specified domain.
Force map transfer, even if version of master is older than 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.
