nidomain - NetInfo domain utility
nidomain -l [ hostname ]
nidomain -m tag
nidomain -d tag
nidomain -c tag master/remotetag
The nidomain utility is an interface to nibindd(8), to which it sends
all of its requests about the domains served on a given machine. It
also can be used to create and destroy NetInfo databases.
The nidomain utility will allow one to create multiple levels of Net-
Info hierarchy, but it is not a particularly easy way to do it. One
should use the NetInfo Manager application for setting up multilevel
-l [ hostname ]
List the domains by tag served on the given hostname. If host-
name is unspecified, the local host is used.
-m tag Create a new NetInfo database and server on the local machine
for the domain tag of tag.
-d tag Destroy the local NetInfo database and server associated with
the domain tagged tag. If the database was associated with a
clone, the machine's ``serves'' property on the master is NOT
modified to reflect the fact that the database has been deleted.
-c tag master/remotetag
Creates a clone NetInfo database with the domain tagged tag.
The database is cloned from the machine master and remote tag
remotetag. The machine's ``serves'' property should be set up
prior to running this command to contain the entry "./tag".
