Re: uname -a and hostname

Hi,

What is the output of "uname -n" and "hostname".
What is the OS Version?

If the the hostname you specified in /etc/rc.config.d/netconf is more than 8 characters then surely the "uname -n" and "hostname" will be different if the OS Version is not HP Unix 11.31 and the long hostname is not enabled.

you can use "set_parms hostname" command to reset the hostname. But it will be active only after rebooting the Server.

or

Edit the /etc/rc.config.d/netconf file, change the hostname and run the following commands.

/sbin/init.d/net stop
/sbin/init.d/net start

Do a fresh login and verify.

Re: uname -a and hostname

Hi,
change the host name in the /etc/hosts file and the /etc/rc.config.d/netconf file.

then do the following
#/sbin/init.d/hostname start
#/sbin/init.d/net stop
/sbin/init.d/net start

Re: uname -a and hostname

Hi,

Please try it with

set_parms hostname

and give your desired hostname.

Also check the entry in /etc/rc.config.d/netconf - as what the hostname specified there. uname -a only will show you the first 8 chara of the name specified in netconf file.

Thanks
