Re: Change of hostname

Just out of curiosity, what is the reason for this effort?  I can't 
for the life of me figure out why a sysadmin would make such a request.
Of what significance is a hostname?  The name could be doodah and it 
would serve the same purpose as my personal favorite string, fred.
The function of fred or doodah is in the sysadmins docs.

I guess I was just putting myself in your shoes and wondering if my
sysadmin said the same thing to me, if I would reply, "failure to 
plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.  Go
jump in a lake."  Or more politely, why are you not just changing
the sysadmin docs?  Or they could do something really clever like
use a dns cname, tadahhhhhh.

There is no doubt some real problems that need to be solved.  This
looks like a made up one.  Or maybe there is a real reason and I'd
like to know about that.
