Is there any way to access Account settings from terminal? By Account settings I mean default Account page in System preferences with informations about Automatic login etc. I need to save this setting to a file for later reading.

You can automate a bunch of things in System Preferences with AppleScript, see some examples here:

THX. I'm a bit lost in it. Don't you know how to get to the "Login Options" in "Accounts" pane in "System Preferences"? Only thing I found is getting properties of the security preferences, but not all needed info is there, e.g. "Network Account Server". – tikend Mar 26 '13 at 10:43
What do you want to achieve? Open the preference pane at that location? Programatically view them without a GUI? Programatically add to them for the current user without a GUI? – rjocoleman Mar 26 '13 at 10:46
