Set Hostname

Set the system hostname of a 128T node to the default value of node.router or define a custom hostname. Where node and router are set to the respective values defined in 128T configuration.

Installation

The Set Hostname plugin is obtained from the official 128T software repository.

note

The instructions for installing and managing the plugin can be found here.

Configuration

The plugin confiugration is managed at the node level. If enabled, the plugin will auto-generate a hostname of node.router unless the hostname field is configured to a value besides auto. If disabled the hostname will remain as currently set.

Enabled

Either of the below examples will result in node.router as the hostname.

set-hostname
enabled true
exit
set-hostname
enabled true
hostname auto
exit

The below example will set the hostname to custom-name.

set-hostname
enabled true
hostname custom-name
exit

Disabled

set-hostname
enabled false
exit

Caveat

Ensure your PS1 shell variable includes \H instead of \h to view the full hostname otherwise in the node.router case you will only see the node component, but the system hostname will be accurate.
