You probably want to set HOSTNAME in /etc/sysconfig/network . You can
then reboot the machine, or use the command:

'hostname <desired.host.name>'

- Cole

I have /etc/sysconfig/network configured already.

[root N1-I-FKVM-01 ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=N1-I-FKVM-01

Thanks
