Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71410
ifup-post does not honor DHCP_HOSTNAME
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:30:01 EDT
When configuring the network in redhat-network-config, i can choose to set my
DHCP hostname to something optional. This information will later be saved
However, ifup-post does not look in this file when setting the hostname, it does
just lookup the hostname of the ip address (through ipcalc) i got from the DHCP
DHCP_HOSTNAME is the hostname you *request*; it may not match what you actually get.
