boot parameter database
file specifies the boot
parameters that diskless(8)
clients may request when booting over the network. Each client supported by
this server must have an entry in the
file containing the pathnames
for its "root" and (optionally) "swap" areas.
Each line in the file (other than comment lines that begin with a
‘#’) specifies the client name followed by the pathnames that
the client may request by their logical names. The components of the line are
delimited with blank or tab, and may be continued onto multiple lines with a
client root=server:/export/client/root \
When the client named "client" requests the pathname for its logical
"root" it will be given the server name "server" and the
response to its RPC request.
A line containing simply ‘+’ will cause YP lookups to be done on
the YP map "bootparams".
