How to change Hostname in VPV 1.20?

My customer has deployed HP vPV 1.20 Appliance (CentOS box), they would like to configure the Hostname.


I did not find how to configure Hostname in vPV Appliance, I checked vPV manuals. But no luck.

I tried following without success :


/opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_set_hostname vpv.lab.local


Please suggest.

  • Dear,


    Using the VAMI (Virtual Appliance Management Infrastructure) interface is possible to change the hostname, however when you reboot the system it will go back to "localhost.localdom".


    The only way I found to change the hostname permanently is:


    1. Open the script vami_set_hostname, located at /opt/vmware/share/vami;

    2. Change the line HOSTNAME to desired hostname (see pic below).

    3. Restart the server.
