OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for nodename (opensolaris section 4)

nodename(4)				   File Formats 			      nodename(4)

NAME
       nodename - local source for system name

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/nodename

DESCRIPTION
       When  a	machine  is standalone or its IP address is configured locally, the /etc/nodename
       file contains the system name. By convention, the system name is the same as the  hostname
       associated  with  the  IP  address  of  the  primary network interface, for example, host-
       name.hme0.

       If the machine's network configuration is delivered by the RPC  bootparams  protocol,  the
       /etc/nodename file is not used, as the system name is delivered by the remote service.

       Given  a  system  name  value, regardless of source, the uname utility invoked with the -S
       option is used to set the system name of the running system.

       If the machine's network configuration is delivered by the DHCP protocol,  the  /etc/node-
       name file is used only if the DHCP server does not provide a value for the Hostname option
       (DHCP standard option code 12).

       A system name configured in /etc/nodename should be unique within the system's  name  ser-
       vice domain in order to ensure that any network services provided by the system will oper-
       ate correctly.

       Given a system name value, regardless of source, the uname utility  invoked  with  the  -S
       option is used to set the system name of the running system.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1 Syntax

       The  syntax for nodename consists of a single line containing the system's name. For exam-
       ple, for a system named myhost:

	 myhost
