       nidomain - NetInfo domain utility

       nidomain -l [ hostname ]

       nidomain -m tag

       nidomain -d tag

       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

       -l [ hostname ]
	      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".
