Ignite Client wrong hostname

Hi all:

I need to change a mispelled hostname on the ignite server, what file needs to be changed?

Here's the problem: When I 'boot_client' from the ignite server I get 'hostname10' instead of 'hostname11'.

Re: Ignite Client wrong hostname

go to /var/opt/ignite/clients on Ignite Server and remove hostname link for hostname10 and re-link MAC address to hostname11.

ll /var/opt/ignite/clients/hostname10
rm /var/opt/ignite/clients/hostname10
cd /var/opt/ignite/clients
ln -s hostname11

Re: Ignite Client wrong hostname

OK - There are two entries one for hostname10 and one for hostname11. Can I remove hostname10 and correct the problem?

Re: Ignite Client wrong hostname

If you are sure that you don't want hostname10 then you can. Otherwise you can still re-link hostname10 back once you done with ignite.

It is just a softlink to MAC address. You are not removing directory for that hostname.

Note: In the ignite gui only hostname10 is displayed.

Remove it and gui still has hostname10. hostname11 wont pop up.

Re: Ignite Client wrong hostname

Do you have drop down list in gui? Basically, if you correctly linked your hostname11 to its MAC address then you would be able to see it otherwise you are missing at the MAC address.

What is to be MAC address for hostname11?

What was MAC address for hostname10?

I thought you are using same MAC address for hostname11. If not, link hostname11 MAC address to hostname10 MAC address so that you would be able to use hostname10 image.

cd /var/opt/ignite/clients
ln -s

Re: Ignite Client wrong hostname

Got it. mac address/client_name can be updated with hostname11. It had hostname10 and now the gui is correct.
