Description of problem:
While installing rhel6, hostname field was empty by default only with (.).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run anaconda installation
2. continue till HostName screen
it is empty
name can be there
not sure it is bug or feature
Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log to this bug report? Also, what does DNS think the hostname of this machine is? You should be able to query that on tty2 using the "host" command, I believe.

Any idea what "host <your ip address>" says? I don't see how we can end up with just a dot by default from what anaconda's doing.
from other system, host <IP> output is (host command was not there with installer):
[aalam@i7hawk ~]$ host 10.10.10.85
22.214.171.124.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer test1085.test.redhat.com.
$cat /etc/resolv.conf (on machine, where installation going on)

Can you please attach also /tmp/syslog? You can find the file also on target system as /var/log/anaconda.syslog.
system is no longer available with me. Closing as insufficient data
