       nibindd - NetInfo binder


       The  nibindd daemon is responsible for finding, creating and destroying
       NetInfo (netinfod(8)) servers.  When it starts up, it reads the	direc‐
       tory  /etc/netinfo  for	directories  with  the extension ``.nidb'' and
       starts up a netinfod server for each NetInfo  database  it  finds.   If
       nibindd	is sent a hangup signal, SIGHUP, it kills all running netinfod
       processes and rebinds the NetInfo domain hierarchy (note that this does
       not  affect the connections established by lookupd(8)).	This is useful
       for getting the system to conform to new network configuration  changes
       without	rebooting.  nibindd  writes  a file with its process ID number
       (pid file) in /var/run/

       The nibindd daemon will automatically destroy the  registration	for  a
       netinfod server if it disappears for any reason.	 It will take the net‐
       infod servers down if it is shut down by sending it a terminate signal,

       nidomain(8) is the user interface to nibindd.
