bootparamd — boot
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
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.
You may find the syslog loggings too verbose.
