I am currently setting up Debian Wheezy on a system and network autoconfigure fails and asked to retry with a DHCP hostname.
I have another system (also running Debian Wheezy) hooked up to the same switch. I'd like to use that system to find out what its DHCP hostname is so that I can supply that to the other system.
I've tried searching around by so far I have been unable to find out how to do it.

to find the DHCP server, run in the other machine.
grep dhcp-server-identifier /var/lib/dhcp/dhcp*leases
