hostname in /var/log/messages not printing
In short: I have a few systems with supposedly identical installs. In /var/log/messages most of them print the system hostname on each line just after the timestamp...but some of them just say "linux" instead. Why is this?
I know this is a simple configuration variance...but I haven't been able to find the source.
Your assistance is appreciated. My apologies if this is so simple I should be flogged!
Flog away (but please only after a couple of hints at the answer)
