NFS/NIS command. Force propagation of changed NIS map.
yppush copies a new
version of an NIS map, mapname, from the master NIS server to the
slave NIS servers. It first constructs a list of NIS server hosts by
reading the NIS map ypservers with the -d option's
domain argument. Keys within this map are the ASCII names of the
machines on which the NIS servers run. A "transfer map" request is sent
to the NIS server at each host, along with the information needed by
the transfer agent to call back the yppush. When the attempt has
been completed and the transfer agent has sent yppush a status
message, the results may be printed to stdout.
Normally invoked by /var/yp/Makefile.
Specify a domain.
