setuname


NAME
     setuname - change machine information

SYNOPSIS
     setuname [-t] [-n node] [-s name]

DESCRIPTION
     The setuname utility changes the  parameter  value  for  the
     system  name  and  node  name. Each parameter can be changed
     using setuname and the appropriate option.

     Either or both the -s and -n  options  must  be  given  when
     invoking setuname.

     The system architecture may place requirements on  the  size
     of  the system and network node name. The command will issue
     a fatal warning message and an error  message  if  the  name
     entered is incompatible with the system requirements.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -n node         Changes the node name.  node  specifies  the
                     new  network  node  name  and can consist of
                     alphanumeric  characters  and  the   special
                     characters dash, underbar, and dollar sign.



     -s name         Changes the system name. name specifies  new
                     system  name and can consist of alphanumeric
                     characters and the special characters  dash,
                     underbar, and dollar sign.



     -t              Temporary change. No attempt will be made to
                     create a permanent change.

NOTES
     setuname attempts to change  the  parameter  values  in  two
     places: the running kernel and, as necessary per implementa-
     tion, to cross system reboots. A  temporary  change  changes
     only the running kernel.
