A long time ago I wrote some DSCL instructions. I may eventually update it and put it on this page someday. Alas, there is a lot of other documentation out there now so maybe I wont.
Here are a few notes that I wanted to keep that aren't on the above website.
Here is how I can list person’s account.
dscl /Search -read /Users/james
If I am unsure what accounts exist, I can get a list with this command.
dscl /LDAPv3/127.0.0.1 -list /Users
If I want to see a list of all LDAP and local users (dslocal) I can replace "/LDAPv3/127.0.0.1” with “/Search”
dscl /Search -list /Users
