Set the Longview hostname
Hi, all. Anyone here know how to set the hostname for Longview? It appears right below the Longview name and defaults to "localhost." I have two (2) longviews running. One has the correct FQDN, the other still says localhost. I've run hostnamectl on both servers, /etc/hostname shows the correct FQDN on both, but this one Longview is stuck in localhost-land.
Setting a hostname on a Linode is dependent upon the distribution that Linode is running. The directions for all of our supported distros can be found in our guides through the link below:
Getting Started - Set the Hostname
Based on your usage of
hostnamectl in your question, I assume you're using one of the following distros:
Arch / CentOS 7 / Debian 8 / Fedora / Ubuntu 16.04 and above
If that is the case, you want to run the following command to set the hostname:
hostnamectl set-hostname example-hostname
If that's what you're doing, and it isn't working, are there any errors you get when you run that command? If so, feel free to thread them here.
I hope that helps you out. If it doesn't answer your question, or I've misunderstood, feel free to reply here to let me know.
