Inhibits map nickname translation.
-d domain
Specifies the NIS domain. If this option is not used, the NIS domain is assumed to be the domain named in the DEFAULT_NIS_DOMAIN environment variable.
-h nisServer
Specifies the name of the NIS server. If this option is not used, the NIS server is assumed to be the server named in the NIS_SERVER environment variable. If NIS_SERVER is not set, ypmatch broadcasts the request.
The key for which you want to display the value. To display the value of more than one key, specify the keys separated by spaces. If any key begins with a slash mark (/), backslash (\) or hyphen (-), these special characters must be preceded by a backslash (\). For example, if the key name is \mykey, then use \\mykey.
Displays the map nickname translation table.
