Thread: My Host name is reverting back to Default Why?

  1. #1

    Question My Host name is reverting back to Default Why?

    My default Hostname was linux-hubu

    I went to yast networkservices hostnames and changed the name to suse.site. It changed and stayed for a few days now all of a sudden even though etc/hosts still has the correct name
    I see the default name linux-hubu at the command promp.
    Wghat in the world is going on?

    here is my hosts file below

    #
    # hosts This file describes a number of hostname-to-address
    # mappings for the TCP/IP subsystem. It is mostly
    # used at boot time, when no name servers are running.
    # On small systems, this file can be used instead of a
    # "named" name server.
    # Syntax:
    #
    # IP-Address Full-Qualified-Hostname Short-Hostname
    #

    127.0.0.1 localhost

    # special IPv6 addresses
    ::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback

    fe00::0 ipv6-localnet

    ff00::0 ipv6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ipv6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ipv6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ipv6-allhosts
    127.0.0.2 Suse.site Bill
