Description Dave Jones 2008-03-27 19:49:08 EDT
anaconda picked up the hostname of the machine I was installing from DNS. I changed the setting from 'manual' to 'obtain from DNS', and when I rebooted the installed system, the hostname ended up as 'localhost.localdomain'.
Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2008-04-03 15:42:20 EDT
So when I fill in the host name manually I keep that hostname upon reboot. Maybe this is only when you're autofilled for the hostname via dhcp. I'll try that mode next.
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2008-04-08 13:57:57 EDT
I've verified with multiple installs. This no longer happens, the host name gotten from dhcp during install remains the hostname upon boot, listed in /etc/hosts.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-04-08 14:35:02 EDT
weird, I just updated a f9 box here, rebooted, hostname was still localhost.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-04-08 14:46:45 EDT
fwiw, /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/efcfg-eth0 contained DHCP_HOSTNAME=foo correctly, but actual hostname wasn't set.
Comment 5 Jesse Keating 2008-04-08 15:04:30 EDT
That's odd. However we're talking about new installs, not upgrades. What's in your /etc/hosts/ file and /etc/sysconfig/network ?
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-04-08 15:20:02 EDT
rats, /etc/sysconfig/network contained: HOSTNAME=localhost.localdomain thx!
