The unit-query-for-name-at-boot parameter controls whether, at boot time, the terminal sends a reverse name request to the name servers to discover the terminal's hostname.
Using a reverse name request is useful in situations in which the terminal's hostname must be known at boot time; for example, if the terminal should download a configuration file named for its hostname. This parameter is saved in NVRAM.
Table 3-5 unit-query-for-name-at-boot Parameter
