Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1271079
Prerequisites ask for hostname -s to resolve
Last modified: 2015-11-17 14:06:02 EST
Section Number and Name:
1.4.1. Base Operating System
Describe the issue:
# ping -c1 `hostname -s` # my_system
does not really make much sense. With myhostname nss plugin, only the FQDN will be resolved, and my test shows that that is enough for Satellite to install. Also, the sentence above that example says
Full forward and reverse DNS resolution using a fully qualified domain name. Ensure that hostname and localhost resolve correctly, using the following commands:
so it correctly only talks about FQDN, not short name.
Suggestions for improvement:
Remove that ping -c1 `hostname -s` # my_system line.

This was my original thought, just link to the earlier chapter. Do you think I can find the email where I originally asked about it? Nooooo :-(
Thanks for acking the bug.
Scheduled for release with async #2.
