3.4. NetInfo

The NetInfo directory is organized hierarchically, starting from the root, which, like a filesystem's root, is called /. However, this is not meant to suggest that there is a corresponding directory or file for each NetInfo entry. Instead, the NetInfo data is stored in a collection of files under /var/db/netinfo.

You can browse or modify the NetInfo database using NetInfo Manager, which is located in /Applications/Utilities. Figure 3-5 shows NetInfo Manager displaying the properties of the mysql user.
