dspluginhelperd -- support daemon for legacy DirectoryService plugins SYNOPSIS
dspluginhelperd [-v] DESCRIPTION
DirectoryService has been replaced by opendirectoryd(8). dspluginhelperd provides support for 3rd party DirectoryService plugins. More information can be accessed from the Darwin Open Directory Page: OPTIONS
The options are as follows: -v Display the release version. DIAGNOSTICS
See odutil(1) for information on enabling debug logging and various other options introspection of opendirectoryd. ERRORS
Error codes are available using dserr(1) or from framework headers <DirectoryService/DirServiceTypes.h>. DirectoryService.framework is dep- recated as of 10.6 and OpenDirectory.framework should be used instead. OPEN SOURCE
The source code for dspluginhelperd is available as part of Apple's Darwin open source initiative. dspluginhelperd is part of the Directory- Service project. More information on Darwin may be found on the Web at DirectoryService API and Plug-in API are documented at The headers for the deprecated DirectoryService APIs can also be found in the following location: /System/Library/Frameworks/DirectoryService.framework/Headers/ FILES

opendirectoryd -- is a launchd(8) job for client access to local or remote directory systems SYNOPSIS
opendirectoryd [--version] DESCRIPTION
opendirectoryd is a launchd(8) job which replaces "DirectoryService" as a core part of the Open Directory technology. Several modules are provided that allow access to existing directory systems: o Active Directory o LDAP o Local Database o NIS Modules opendirectoryd modules have specific capabilities: Authentication password verification, password changes, etc. Connection general connections used for queries, record modifications, etc. Discovery location and prioritization of servers to contact (a.k.a., service discovery) Unspecified a generic module used for unspecified purpose (usually to extend capabilities) Third party plugins developed for "DirectoryService" are supported via dspluginhelperd(8). Open Directory Open Directory is a technology which includes a client API abstraction layer, a directory server, and the opendirectoryd daemon. This allows clients to utilize a single API to access a variety of directory servers simultaneously or configure their own directory server. Open Directory forms the foundation of how Mac OS X accesses all authoritative configuration information (users, groups, mounts, managed desktop data, etc.). This allows use of virtually any directory system via Apple and third party modules. Configuration of opendirectoryd is done via "System Preferences" under the "Users & Groups" preference pane. Advanced settings are available by using "Open Directory Utility..." within "Users & Groups" preference pane. More information is available from the Open Directory website: Open Directory Server Open Directory Server utilizes OpenLDAP which is included as part of Mac OS X Client, Mac OS X Server, and Darwin. OpenLDAP provides a robust and scalable platform for serving directory-based information for both standalone and networked systems. NFSv4 Domain name The following will set the default domain name used to map user and group identities in NFSv4 client/server operations. dscl . -create Config/NFSv4Domain RealName <> This command requires root privileges. FILES
Files are stored in various locations for opendirectoryd depending on use. A list of folders and files are shown below. System files provided by Apple and should only change with operating system updates: /System/Library/OpenDirectory/Configurations/ node configuration files /System/Library/OpenDirectory/DynamicNodeTemplates/ dynamic node definitions /System/Library/OpenDirectory/Mappings/ record/attribute mapping tables /System/Library/OpenDirectory/Modules/ modules to be loaded on demand /System/Library/OpenDirectory/Templates/ templates used for node styles (module layout and mappings) /System/Library/OpenDirectory/record-schema.plist OpenDirectory record/attribute schema /System/Library/OpenDirectory/permissions.plist OpenDirectory global record/attribute permissions User defined files: /Library/OpenDirectory/Templates/ templates used for node styles (module layout and mappings) /Library/OpenDirectory/Mappings/ record/attribute mapping tables Files that change periodically are located in: /Library/Preferences/OpenDirectory/Configurations/ node configuration files /Library/Preferences/OpenDirectory/DynamicData/ dynamic data stored by nodes /Library/Preferences/OpenDirectory/.LogDebugAtStartOnce enables debug logging until process exits or system is rebooted (reboot required) /var/log/opendirectoryd.log* log file(s) for opendirectoryd Legacy locations: /Library/DirectoryServices/PlugIns/ third party DirectoryService plugins loaded by dspluginhelperd SEE ALSO
