Specifying Hosts for Loading Configuration Files

You can designate one or two hosts (called the primary and secondary initial file servers) from which the terminal can download its configuration file.

If you do not designate initial file servers, the terminal attempts to download a configuration file from the boot host (the host from which the terminal downloaded its X server).

The terminal first attempts to download a configuration file from the primary file server host. If that attempt fails, the terminal tries the secondary file server host.

Terminals booted locally from a PCMCIA card can load configuration files from the network if you designate a default file server host.

For information about designating initial file servers and a default file server for a locally booted terminal, see Chapter 5, Configuring Network Services.
