DESCRIPTION
       niutil lets you to do arbitrary reads and writes on the given NetInfo domain.  In order to
       perform writes, niutil must be run as root on the NetInfo master for the database,  unless
       the  -p,  -P,  or  -u  options are given.  The directory specified by path is separated by
       "/"s, similar to the filesystem.  The property names may be given in the path using a "=",
       but will default to the property name "name".  For example, the following refers to a user
       with the user ID 3.

       "/name=users/uid=3"

       The following shorter form would also be sufficient:

       "/users/uid=3"

       You may specify a numeric ID for the directory instead of the string path.

OPTIONS
       -t     Interpret the domain as a tagged domain.	For example, "parrish/network" refers  to
	      the  database  tagged  "network"	on  the  machine "parrish".  You may supply an IP
	      address instead of a machine name.

       -p     Prompt for the root password or the named user password if  combined  with  the  -u
	      option.

       -u user
	      Run this command as the named user.  This option implies -p.

       -P password
	      Supplies	the  root  password  or  the  named user password if combined with the -u
	      option.

       -T seconds
	      Sets the read and write timeout to the given number of seconds.

OPERATIONS
       -create domain path
	      Create a new directory with the given path.

       -destroy domain path
	      Destroy the directory with the given path.

       -createprop domain path key [ val... ]
	      Create a new property in the directory path.  key refers to the name of  the  prop-
	      erty;  0	or  more property values may be specified.  If the named property already
	      exists, it's overwritten.

       -appendprop domain path key val...
	      Appends new values to an existing property in the directory path.   key  refers  to
	      the name of the property; 0 or more property values may be specified.  If the named
	      property doesn't exist, it's created.

       -mergeprop domain path key val...
	      Merges new values into an existing property in the directory path.  key  refers  to
	      the  name  of the property; 0 or more property values may be specified.  The values
	      are appended to the property only if they are not already present.   If  the  named
	      property doesn't exist, it's created.

       -insertval domain path key val propindex
	      Inserts  a  new  value  into an existing property in the directory path at position
	      propindex.  key refers to the name of the property.  If the named property  doesn't
	      exist, it's created.

       -destroyprop domain path key
	      Destroy the property with name key in the given path.

       -destroyval domain path key val
	      Destroy the given value in the property with name key in the given path.

       -renameprop domain path oldkey newkey
	      Renames the property with name oldkey in the given path.

       -read domain path
	      Read the properties associated with the directory specified in the given path.

       -list domain path
	      List the directories in the given domain/path.  The directory ID's are listed along
	      with any names they may have.

       -readprop domain path key
	      Read the values of the given property in the specified directory.

       -readval domain path key index
	      Read the value at the given index of the named property in the specified directory.

       -rparent domain
	      Prints the current NetInfo parent of a server.  The  server  should  be  explicitly
	      given using the -t host/tag option.

       -resync domain
	      Resynchronizes  NetInfo.	 If a domain name is given, the master resynchronizes all
	      clones.  If the -t clone/tag option is used instead of a tag, then only that  clone
	      is resynchronized.  Using -t master/tag resynchronizes the whole domain.

       -statistics domain
	      Print server statistics.

       -domainname domain
	      Print the domain name of the given domain.  This is useful when the domain is spec-
	      ified is a relative name (like "." or "..") or when a connection is made using  the
	      -t server/tag option.

EXAMPLE
       "niutil -list . /" list the directories at the top level in the local NetInfo database.
