Hi Alexander, Huzzah!
Thanks for explaining how gethostname() works. At least armed with this information I can make a case to the powers that be why we need to make a change like this. So does this mean that all servers should have a fqdn in /etc/hostname or in the case of RHEL6 setting the HOSTNAME variable in /etc/sysconfig/network? Thanks a ton for your help!
