bootparamd


NAME
     rpc.bootparamd, bootparamd - boot parameter server

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/sbin/rpc.bootparamd [-d]

DESCRIPTION
     rpc.bootparamd is a server process that provides information
     from a bootparams database to diskless clients at boot time.
     See bootparams(4)

     The source for the bootparams database is determined by  the
     nsswitch.conf(4)   file   (on   the   machine   running  the
     rpc.bootparamd process).

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -d       Display debugging information.



FILES
     /etc/bootparams         boot parameter data base



     /etc/nsswitch.conf      configuration  file  for  the  name-
                             service switch

     butes:

     butes(5), smf(5)

NOTES
     A  diskless  client  requires  service  from  at  least  one
     rpc.bootparamd  process  running  on a server that is on the
     same IP subnetwork as the diskless client.

     Some routines  that  compare  hostnames  use  case-sensitive
     string  comparisons;   some  do  not. If an incoming request
     fails, verify that the case of the  hostname in the file  to
     be  parsed matches the case of the hostname called  for, and
     attempt the request again.

     The rpc.bootparamd service is managed by the service manage-
     ment facility, smf(5), under the service identifier:

     svc:/network/rpc/bootparams

     Administrative actions on this service,  such  as  enabling,
     disabling,  or  requesting  restart,  can be performed using
     svcadm(1M). The service's status can be  queried  using  the
     svcs(1) command.
