SYNOPSISnidomain-l [ hostname ]
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

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".
