MirOS Manual: myname(5)

MYNAME(5)                    BSD Reference Manual                    MYNAME(5)

NAME

     myname - default hostname

SYNOPSIS

     /etc/myname

DESCRIPTION

     The myname file is read by netstart(8) at system startup time.

     /etc/myname contains the symbolic name of the host machine. The file
     should contain a single line specifying the fully qualified domain name
     (FQDN) of the system (e.g. host.example.com). The name must be resolv-
     able, either by matching a hostname specified in /etc/hosts (see
     hosts(5)) or through DNS (see resolv.conf(5)). The hostname is set via
     the hostname(1) utility at boot time. See hostname(7) for a description
     of hostname resolution.

     Empty lines and lines beginning with '#' are ignored.

FILES

     /etc/myname  Default hostname.
