BOOTPARAMD(8) BSD System Manager's Manual BOOTPARAMD(8)
bootparamd -- boot parameter server
rpc.bootparamd [-d] [-s] [-r router] [-f file]
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 boot.
-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 run-
ning the server.
The file to use as boot parameter file instead of /etc/bootparams.
You may find the syslog loggings too verbose.
