Manual Backup

If you are planning to make changes to a NetInfo domain manually or are planning some other configuration change that could affect the domain, you might want to plan a manual backup of the domain. You might also want to do this as part of a backup regimen (particularly for a workstation or server that will not be running at 3:15 a.m.). The command to perform a dump of the NetInfo data is as follows (you can also specify a location before the filename backup.nidump as well as an alternate file name):

nidump -r / -t localhost/local > backup.nidump
