NAMEbootparamd - boot parameter server
SYNOPSISrpc.bootparamd [-d] [-s] [-r router] [-f file]
DESCRIPTIONbootparamd is a server process that provides information to diskless clients necessary for booting. It consults the /etc/bootparams file to find the information it needs. This version will allow the use of aliases on the hostname in the /etc/bootparams file. The returned hostname to the whoami request done by the booting client will be the name that appears in /etc/bootparams and not the canonical name. In this way you can keep the answer short enough so that machines that cannot handle long hostnames won't fail during boot.
OPTIONS-d Display debugging information. -s Log the debugging information to syslog. -r router The default router (a machine or an IP-address). This defaults to the machine running the server. -f file The file to use as boot parameter file instead of /etc/bootparams.
BUGSYou may find the syslog loggings too verbose.
