bootparamd(1M)							bootparamd(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     bootparamd	- boot parameter server

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/etc/rpc.bootparamd [-d] [-i]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     bootparamd	is a server process that provides information to diskless
     clients necessary for booting.  It	consults the bootparams	database.  If
     the client	is not found there, or if the network information service
     (NIS) is not running, then	the /etc/bootparams file is consulted.

     bootparamd	can be invoked either by inetd(1M) or by the user.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -d	  Display the debugging	information.

     -i	  Ignore inter-domain ``whoami'' requests.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     In	the absence of -i, instances of	bootparamd in different	domains	may
     receive a ``whoami'' broadcast, consult NIS to find the requester's
     hostname by its address, receive the answer from a	different domain and
     reply with	the wrong domain name.
