ChorusOS 4.0 Network Administration Guide


If the ChorusOS system is bound to an NIS domain, you can use ypcat(1CC), ypmatch(1CC) and ypwhich(1CC) to obtain information from the NIS database.

Example 6-7 Reading NIS Information

The following example uses ypcat to find "demo" networks mentioned in the NIS database:

$ rsh target arun /bin/ypcat networks | grep demo
started aid = 22
demo                    129.157.171
demo2                   129.157.176

Note that ypcat, ypmatch and ypwhich require access to the NIS database in order to look up information. See "Name Services and ypbind" for suggestions about binding to the NIS server for the domain.
