Re: why the IPV6 looking hostname prior to reboot?




From: "Fred Silsbee" <fredsilsbee yahoo com>

HWADDR=00:b0:d0:16:1c:01

localhost (root) ~ [1009]>hostname
x1-6-00-b0-d0-16-1c-01                   IPV6????


what I wanted! I suppose I must disable IPV6!

IPv6 is not looking like this.
What you see is the MAC from the NIC
IPv6 uses : not a - (ipv6 google: 2001:4860:0:1001::68)

So it has nothing to do with IPv6.
With DHCP maybe you get a hostname assigned, and will overwritten with every new lease.
