I can't seem to change the hostname on my CentOS 6.5 host. I am following instructions I found on this (now defunct) page.
I set my
/etc/hosts like so ...
[root@mig-dev-006 ~]# cat /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain 192.168.32.128 ost-dev-00.domain.example ost-dev-00 192.168.32.129 ost-dev-01.domain.example ost-dev-01
... then I make my
/etc/sysconfig/network file like so ...
[root@mig-dev-006 ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network NETWORKING=yes HOSTNAME=ost-dev-00.domain.example NTPSERVERARGS=iburst
... then I run
hostname like so ...
[root@mig-dev-006 ~]# hostname ost-dev-00.domain.example
... and then I run bash and all seems well ...
[root@mig-dev-006 ~]# bash
... but when I restart my network the old hostname comes back:
[root@ost-dev-00 ~]# /etc/init.d/network restart Shutting down interface eth0: Device state: 3 (disconnected) [ OK ] Shutting down loopback interface: [ OK ] Bringing up loopback interface: [ OK ] Bringing up interface eth0: Active connection state: activating Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/6 state: activated Connection activated [ OK ] [root@ost-dev-00 ~]# bash [root@mig-dev-006 ~]#
