Description of Problem:
I am not sure if this is a problem or was done intentionally.
An nfs gui install was done on two more or less identical systems. The only
difference is that one of the systems has one ethernet interface and the other
has two. In both cases, eth0 is defined with a static ip address, the ip
address is defined to the dns server, and the nfs install was performed through
If there is only eth0 then the host name is filled in. However, if there are
eth0 and eth1 then the host name is not filled in. eth1 is correctly marked for
As I said, I cannot really say if this was done intentionally or even argue for
it to be "fixed".
This is acting as intended in our current code (not sure how that compares to
the 8.0 behavior anymore, though)
