bootparamd - boot parameter server
/usr/etc/rpc.bootparamd [-d] [-i]
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.
-d Display the debugging information.
-i Ignore inter-domain ``whoami'' requests.
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.
inetd(1M), nis(1M), bootparams(4).
