|BOOTPARAMD(8)||System Manager's Manual||BOOTPARAMD(8)|
bootparamdis a server process that provides information to diskless clients necessary for booting. It consults the file /etc/bootparams. It should normally be started from /etc/rc.
This version will allow the use of aliases on the hostname in the /etc/bootparams file. The hostname returned in response to the booting client's whoami request will be the name that appears in the config file, 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.
While parsing, if a line containing just “+” is found, and the YP subsystem is active, the YP map bootparams will be searched immediately.
The options are as follows:
It's not clear if the non-canonical hack mentioned above is a good idea.
rpc.bootparamdis run on a system which is also running YP, your YP domainname will be made public information.
