IPv6 Administration Guide

Changes to Name Service Commands

To support IPv6, you can look up IPv6 addresses with the existing name service commands. For example, the ypmatch command works with the new NIS maps. The nismatch command works with the new NIS+ tables. The nslookup command can look up the new AAAA records in DNS. For a description of the changes to the name services see NIS Extensions for IPv6, NIS+ Extensions for IPv6, and DNS Extensions for IPv6.

For a description of procedures that use these commands, see Displaying IPv6 Name Service Information.
