sounds as if the name is attached to either:
- NetworkManager and since I don't use it, I don't know where it might
store supplemental settings...
- the configuration of the device itself
- in some script that sets the name somewhere.

is this system using DHCP to get its ip address?
if so, what is ouput of...
/etc/dhclient-eth0.conf

I think that if the hostname is 'reset', it should be reflected in
syslog...
what is output of...
grep Host /var/log/messages

Might it be set in /etc/rc.d/rc.local?
tail /etc/rc.d/rc.local # should look very much like this and anything
# additional might be a script that sets it
#!/bin/sh
#
# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.

touch /var/lock/subsys/local

Hi Craig,

Yes this pc does get its address using DHCP but the file
/etc/dhclient-eth0.conf does not exist in etc.* The only file name starting with dhcp is dhcpd.conf and the contents appear to be a generic sample.

The output from /var/log/messages is as follows:

[root@bogon log]# grep Host /var/log/messages-20080323

Running
tail /etc/rc.d/rc.local gives me identical results to your sample.

Thank you very much for your suggestions. Not clear on the meaning of the output from messages....The host name should not be derived from the computer hardware/firmware.

It's coming from avahi:

<quote>Mar 31 04:32:25 bogon avahi-daemon[2339]: Server startup
complete. Host name is bogon.local. Local service cookie is
4272874820.</quote>


Try to either stop avahi* or edit /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf according
to your needs.

I personally would stop it.


HTH,
