Chapter 23. File and Resource Sharing wi... > Getting to Know the NetInfo Database

Getting to Know the NetInfo Database

In this section, we will get to know the NetInfo database. We will use the NetInfo Manager to examine parts of the NetInfo database. Then we will actually make a change to the NetInfo database by adding a printer to the system. We will demonstrate how to add a printer using the NetInfo Manager entirely. Then we will add a printer by using the Print Center in conjunction with the NetInfo Manager. In the final portion of this section, we will integrate command-line usage while examining some of the NetInfo database and adding a printer.

Using the NetInfo Manager to Examine the NetInfo Database

The NetInfo Manager (path: /Applications/Utilities/NetInfo Manager) is the graphical interface to the NetInfo database. Using the NetInfo Manager to examine some of the contents of your NetInfo database is the easiest way to see the hierarchical arrangement of the database.
