When I create VMs, my automatic hostname is localhost.localdomain. This is creating some networking issues from my VM to another Windows computer that I have (cannot ping to my VM). How can I change my hostname of my VM? Do I need to also change it inside my VM as well as in the vSphere Client?
Update: I have changed my hostname of my RHEL VM to say "MyVM" and verified this in /etc/hosts and /etc/sysconfig/network. However, I am still unable to ping to MyVM from another Windows computer on my network. Does this have anything to do with the dnsdomainname? I get dnsdomainname: Unknown host. On my vSphere Client, it still says the Host is localhost.localdomain, but from your responses below, it should not matter about what the vSphere Client says..
