Im curious about this issue it seems the bug was closed as won't fix with the last comment saying
systemd ships with a policykit file which allows the system administrator to set the hostname.
and that

This behaviour is by design.

Please file a bug with the upstream systemd project if you believe this should be changed. Thanks.
When the issue is that non administators are able to make the change.

Am I missing something here?


hostname change, permitted, sudo, systemd
