Obviously "epohost" doesn't fulfill the criteria to be a FQDN.
Choose a random, non-conflicting domain name for your LAN. And set the HOSTNAME in /etc/sysconfig/network accordingly. For instance:

/etc/hosts               localhost.localdomain   localhost      epowork.olsen.intra   epowork      epohost.olsen.intra     epohost



Thanks, so FQDN means that there MUST always be at least one dot in the hostname. What if I use epo.dk, which is a public domain owned by me, instead of your example olsen.intra? Does that cause any conflict?
