Description Vadim Rutkovsky 2020-12-06 18:03:15 UTC
Description of problem:
In Fedora 33, a change was introduced to set the hostname to "fedora" as a fallback instead of the default "localhost", so the current script does not work in OKD as NM will assign the fallback hostname.

This change makes it so the hostname is set to vSphere's
guestinfo.hostname if that's defined, before NetworkManager is started.
