updbootparam(1M)					      updbootparam(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     updbootparam - NIS	bootparams database update program

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     updbootparam bootparams-file "make	bootparams"

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     updbootparam, which runs on an NIS	master only, is	the NIS	bootparams(4)
     update program that modifies the database upon request.  An update
     request is	sent from yp_bootparam(1M) command using an RPC	call.
     updbootparam is invoked indirectly	by the RPC daemon rpc.ypupdated(1M)
     via an intermediate makefile updaters(4).

     updbootparam is designed to be used in the	makefile updaters.  The
     parameter bootparams-file is the bootparams file used in the NIS database
     makefile, /var/yp/Makefile.  Usually, it is /etc/bootparams.  The update
     request tells updbootparam	whether	to add or delete a bootparams entry.
