Subject Re: How is hostname set?
Date Thu, 27 Dec 2012 03:13:51 GMT
Cloudstack configures the domr dnsmasq server to serve out the appropriate guest IP for the
instance, and also sets up the reverse DNS between the display name and the guest IP.

I'm forgetting the specific details - OS gets it's hostname either from DHCP or reverse dns…I
can't remember exactly which. :)
