Re: [Spacewalk-list] Machine getting the wrong hostname

When I do rhnreg_ks I specify the profile name as the fully qualified domain name, like this:

rhnreg_ks --serverUrl=https://spacewalk/XMLRPC --profilename=`hostname -f` --activationkey=1-blabla

The DNS may not match the actual “hostname” of the new box.

Also, just because it is in /etc/hosts, does not mean that it is the true “hostname.”


To find out:

On a unix box, just type in “hostname” and press enter.

That will show you what the system thinks its own name is.


For windows, you have to right click on my computer, then properties to see the hostname.

I have a strange problem. I have a machine with a name, let say hostname1.


When I to the registering of it with:


rhnreg_ks --serverUrl=https://spacewalk/XMLRPC --activationkey=1-blabla


When I check the detail I see a hostname of “whatever”.


I have checked the DNS (forward and reverse), /etc/hosts and cannot find why I get that hostname.


Someone know what I should do to correct.
