    From the OS X 10.6 man page for [i]changeip[/i]
    [code]HISTORY
    A version of changeip has been present in Mac OS X Server since at least version 10.3 (Panther).

    In 10.6 (Snow Leopard), changeip no longer manipulates the directory and therefore no longer takes a
    directory URL as an argument.[/code]
    So what do we use to manipulate the directory record?

    You may find /usr/libexec/changeDirData.pl useful. It has a man page: man changeDirData.pl

    From the advanced server admin documentation

    [quote]To change the DNS name
    sudo scutil –set OldName You can use the scutil command-line tool to set the computer name and local
    hostname. For more information, see the scutil man page. [b]Do not use the changeip command-line tool to change DNS names[/b], even though the
    tool is still available.[/quote]

    I’m confused. In the same manual they tell you to use changeip to modify other records so what gives?
