PNPD(8C)                                                              PNPD(8C)



NAME
       pnpd - PNP daemon

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/rpc.pnpd

AVAILABILITY
       Available  only  on  Sun  386i systems running a SunOS 4.0.x release or
       earlier.  Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.

DESCRIPTION
       pnpd is used during routine booting of systems to determine their  net-
       work  configuration,  and  by  new systems to configure themselves on a
       network.  pnpd adds and removes diskless clients of the boot server  on
       which  it is running.  The pnpd daemon is normally invoked in rc.local.
       The RPCs are used by netconfig(8C),  pnp.s386  (see  pnpboot(8C)),  and
       client(8).

       The  bootservers Network Information Service (NIS) map specifies limits
       on server capacity and default swap size.

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.
