BOOTPARAMD(8)               System Manager's Manual              BOOTPARAMD(8)



NAME
       bootparamd - boot parameter server

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

DESCRIPTION
       bootparamd  is  a  server process that provides information to diskless
       clients necessary for booting.  It first consults the local  /etc/boot-
       params  file for a client entry.  If the local bootparams file does not
       exist, bootparamd consults the corresponding Network  Information  Ser-
       vice (NIS) map.

       bootparamd can be invoked either by inetd(8C) or by the user.

OPTIONS
       -d     Display the debugging information.

FILES
       /etc/bootparams

SEE ALSO
       inetd(8C)

NOTES
       The  Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Sun Yellow
       Pages (YP).  The functionality of the two remains the  same;  only  the
       name has changed.
