rpc.bootparamd(1M)	System Administration Commands	    rpc.bootparamd(1M)

NAME
       rpc.bootparamd, bootparamd - boot parameter server

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

DESCRIPTION
       rpc.bootparamd  is  a  server  process that provides information	from a
       bootparams database to diskless clients at boot time. See bootparams(4)

       The source for the  bootparams  database	 is  determined	 by  the  nss-
       witch.conf(4) file (on the machine running the rpc.bootparamd process).

       The  rpc.bootparamd  program  can be invoked either by inetd(1M)	or di-
       rectly from the command line.

OPTIONS
       -d    Display debugging information.

FILES
       /etc/bootparams
	     boot parameter data base

       /etc/nsswitch.conf
	     configuration file	for the	name-service switch

ATTRIBUTES
       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+
       |      ATTRIBUTE	TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+
       |Availability		     |SUNWbsu			   |
       +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+

SEE ALSO
       inetd(1M), bootparams(4), nsswitch.conf(4), attributes(5)

NOTES
       A diskless client requires service from	at  least  one	rpc.bootparamd
       process	running	 on  a server that is on the same IP subnetwork	as the
       diskless	client.

       Some routines that compare hostnames use	case-sensitive string  compar-
       isons;  some do not. If an incoming request fails, verify that the case
       of the  hostname	in the file to be parsed matches the case of the host-
       name called  for, and attempt the request again.
