setting the hostname of the machine not working??
I am having a strange problem, I am trying to set the hostname of my server from the terminal after leaving an xwindows session. I tried during the gnome (using redhat 9 by the way) to set it from a command line using hostname command but it didn't work. I then init 3'ed to a terminal and directly after I set the hostname command it reflects the new setting, but after I reset the server it goes back to the old name. I am obviously logged in as root while doing this, but to no avail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
