Applies to:

Sun Enterprise 10000 Server - Version All Versions and later
Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
Sun Fire E25K Server - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The rpcinfo(1m) command can be used to locate boot servers in your subnet as well as to verify that the machine(s) you have set up as boot servers actually will respond to a boot request. Please note a response only means the service is registered. It does not mean that there actually is a bootable image that the client (machine attempting to boot) can use.
