InformationThis entry starts the command /usr/sbin/bootpd when required. This service is used to provide boot partition data for a network boot. It uses the same UDP port as DHCP server dhcpsd.
The recommendation is to disable this service UNLESS you are operating a NIM server. When using NIM bootps as a service is accepted, but the preference would be to configure a DHCP server with the equivalent information.
The bootpd command implements an Internet Boot Protocol server.
SolutionIn /etc/inetd.conf, comment out the bootps entry and refresh the inetd process:
chsubserver -r inetd -C /etc/inetd.conf -d -v 'daytime' -p udp
lssrc -s inetd && refresh -s inetd
