Change vCloud Director Cell Hostname

Jump to solution

I've deployed the vCloud Director 5.5 appliance and the hostname defaults to localhost.localdom. I've tried changing this at the console (Option 3) and also at the webpage (https://hostname:5480). Each time after I reboot, it reverts to localhost.localdom.

Any idea how I can keep this permanent?

Thanks,

Scott

Go to /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_set_hostname in vCD cell

And edit the line that says

HOSTNAME="localhost.localdom" to your desired hostname. Save it and exit.

Reboot the appliance once.
