Re: changing ostnamefrom the console

The MP hostname is completely independent from the OS configuration. It is set along with the other MP network settings.

As this is a MP-related issue, the server hardware model would have been more useful than the OS version (B.11.23).

After logging in to MP, enter the MP command "CM" for Command Menu, then "LC" for LAN Config. The MP will display its current network configuration: one of the items is the MP hostname. At this point, you can choose to change it.

Hi Himacs,

Your MP console name is not your Hostname .
Dont worry . YOu can change it from MP it self.

Re: changing ostnamefrom the console

The reply above are right, MP host name is different to OS. You can use command 'lc' to change it.

MP:CM> lc
LC
Current LAN Configuration:
- - MAC Address :
D - DHCP Status :
I - IP Address :
M - MP Host Name :
S - Subnet Mask :
G - Gateway Address :
L - Link State :
W - Remote Serial Console Port :
- - SSH Access Port :
- - IPMI / LAN Port :

Enter parameter(s) to change, A to modify All, or [Q] to Quit: m <== Just enter m to modify MP host name.

Re: changing ostnamefrom the console

How did you change the hostname?

Best is to do a

# set_parms

e.g.

# set_parms hostname

Hope this helps!

For MP host name you can change it by following command.

mp>lc

If you are looking for OS hostname. you can change it by.

#set_parm hostname or

#uname -S
or

edit following file /etc/rc.config.d/netconf and /etc/hosts (it is required server reboot)


make sure if any software is running and you are using set_parm or uname -S,it will require a reboot.

Once you changed using lc it will last till the next attempt of updating/changing the hostname.
