In relation to rename a server which was acting as a Satellite server. Howto change the Hostname of a RHN Satellite server (Spacewalk Server) 1) you need to change the server to the new IP adress / hostname. I advise to do this in single user mode from the currently running state. Note: Don’t use UPPERCASE in the hostname. Satellite doesn’t like that !!! telinit 1 hostname NEW_HOSTNAME vi /etc/sysconfig/network #change to the new hostname If you need to change the IP Adress then do so here now. vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg.[interface] restart networking service network restart  2) DO NOT REBOOT continue here …. spacewalk-hostname-rename CURRENT(NEW_OR_OLD)_IPADRESS Follow the instruction on the screen to reset the hostname. It will do the rest for you Related posts: RedHat 6.x/CentOS 6.x: Rename or change the hostname temporarily or permanently RedHat / RHN Satellite: usefull commands Centos 6.x: How to install Spacewalk Linux: Howto show the Servers IP address at the login console CentOS / […]
