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.
- Display debugging information.
- 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.
