Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 71448
oddity with hostname assignment
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:59:13 EST
Description of Problem:
With redhat-config-network-1.1.15-1, when you are adding an ethernet connection,
on the third screen of that process (Configure Network Settings) there's a
dialog box at the top of the screen for hostname, then there's another dialog
box under the DHCP settings heading. If you enter a hostname into the box at
the top of the screen, then it will get written to both the
/etc/sysconfig/network file (as it should) as well as the
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file, as an option to pass up to the
DHCP server. This seems wrong to me, as I didn't enter the hostname into the
DHCP settings section.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
you are right... removed the upper "Hostname" entry
/etc/sysconfig/network:HOSTNAME should be set in the main dialog in the DNS tab.
fixed in CVS
Fix confirmed with redhat-config-network-1.1.16-1.
