Unknown host after hostname change
Posted on 2014-09-30
I recently replicated a Red Hat 6.5 vm server to a new vm. After changing the hostname and restarting I tried to ping it by the new name but receive an error "unknown host oral11g2" If I ping the old hostname, ora11g1, it resolves to 127.0.0.1. I am not at all familiar with Linux OS so I was hoping someone could point out what the issue is. I changed the name by using system-config-network.
After reboot, the server shows the new name change but cannot ping it.
