NIDOMAIN(8)				       System Manager's Manual					  NIDOMAIN(8)

NAME
nidomain - NetInfo domain utility
SYNOPSIS
nidomain -l [ hostname ] nidomain -m tag nidomain -d tag nidomain -c tag master/remotetag
DESCRIPTION
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 NetInfo hierarchy, but it is not a particu- larly easy way to do it. One should use the NetInfo Manager application for setting up multilevel hierar- chies.
OPTIONS
-l [ hostname ] List the domains by tag served on the given hostname. If hostname 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".
