Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-12-24 07:25:57 EST
Created attachment 668479 [details]
hostnamectl.diff

Description of problem:

virt-sysprep cannot set the hostname on Fedora 18, since
Fedora 18 introduced a stupidly over-complicated way to set
the hostname.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libguestfs 1.20

How reproducible:

100%

Additional info:

I ran the 'hostnamectl' command on a snapshot and diff'd the
two images to find out what it was doing.  The diff is attached,
but note that it contains a lot of extraneous changes because
I rebooted the machine in between.
Comment 1 Paolo Bonzini 2013-02-07 09:59:15 EST
You should use noatime to get a relevant diff.

Looking at actual mtime changes and ignoring changes to /tmp, the affected files are hostname (for the "static" hostname), machine-info (for the "pretty" hostname) and resolv.conf (for the domain name).
