Fedora Looks At Changing The Default Hostname For F26 & Beyond

One of the most discussed items this week on the Fedora developers' mailing list is in regards to changing the hostname on Fedora 26 and future versions.

Fedora has defaulted to localhost.localdomain but this is becoming a problem for systems acting as a client to FreeIPA and Active Directory domain controllers.

Other distributions set their hostname to like WIN-XXXXXXXXXXX on Windows with the Xs representing a random character string, macOS and Ubuntu require users to specify their own host name, and SUSE generates its own hostname in a similar manner to Windows.

The talk now is that at install-time for Fedora 26 and beyond rather than using localhost.localdomain it would instead generate its own random string, such as Fedora-XXXXXXXXXXX in hopes of eliminating duplicate names on the network.

Those interested in more details or wanting to jump in on the discussion can find it via this mailing list thread.
