bootparams - boot parameter database
The bootparams file specifies the boot parameters that diskless(8)
clients may request when booting over the network. Each
by this server must have an entry in the bootparams file
pathnames for its root and (optionally) swap areas.
Each line in the file (other than comment lines that begin
with a #)
specifies the client name followed by the pathnames that the
request by their logical names. The components of the line
with blank or tab, and may be continued onto multiple lines
with a backslash.
When the client named "client" requests the pathname for its
"root" it will be given the server name ``server'' and the
``/export/client/root'' as the response to its RPC request.
A line containing simply "+" will cause YP lookups to be
done on the YP
/etc/bootparams default configuration file
diskless(8), rpc.bootparamd(8), yp(8)
