BOOTPARAMD(8) System Manager's Manual BOOTPARAMD(8)
bootparamd - boot parameter server
/usr/etc/rpc.bootparamd [ -d ]
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.
-d Display the debugging information.
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.
