Adding a new machine alias via netinfo(e) (Unix->Administration)
The NetInfo Manager utility is painfully slow. Here's how to add a machine via the command line. In this case adding the IP for a machine called "tower" (thanks to rzolf)
# niutil -create . /machines/tower
# niutil -createprop . /machines/tower ip_address
# niutil niutil -createprop . /machines/tower serves ./local
