sethostname operation

This feature is available from SNS version 3.10.2 upwards or 4.1.1 upwards.

The sethostname operation changes the value of the following fields in the global configuration file (~/System/global file):

  • SystemName: corresponds to the name of the firewall. When high availability (HA) is used, this field corresponds to the system name of the HA cluster.
  • SystemNodeName: corresponds to the local name of the system node, so that it can be differentiated from the other nodes in the HA cluster.
