BOOTPARAMD(8) BSD System Manager’s Manual BOOTPARAMD(8)
bootparamd - boot parameter server
rpc.bootparamd [-d] [-s] [-r router] [-f file] [-l]
bootparamd 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
-d Display debugging information.
-s Log the debugging information to syslog.
The default router (a machine or an IP-address). This defaults
to the machine running the server.
The file to use as boot parameter file instead of /etc/boot-
-l Turn off DNS lookup during host search.
You may find the syslog loggings too verbose.
