The local 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 entry. Instead, the data is stored in a collection of files under /var/db/netinfo .
You can browse or modify the local directory using NetInfo Manager, which is located in /Applications/Utilities . Figure 3-4 shows NetInfo Manager displaying the properties of the mysql user .
