Whenever I join a network where there are other Macs, I sometimes get the notification:
This computer's local hostname Macintosh.local is already in use on this network. The name has been changed to 'Macintosh-2.local`.
From then on the result of
hostname is this changed name. I've tried:
- System Preferences->Sharing->Computer Name.
sudo hostname jared-mac.
- System Preferences->Network->Advanced... ->TCP/IP DHCP Client ID
- System Preferences->Network->Advanced... ->WINS
Is this a known issue? Or am I doing something wrong?
