Get fully Fully Qualified Domain Name of a virtual linux machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I have some problems to get correct Fully Qualified Domain Name or computer name from virtual machines with linux OS. (CentOS release 6.2 (Final))

    If I rename the virtual machine, I will still get the old name (from C# code running on windows 2008 R2) . If i reboot the virtual machine after 24-48 hours, I will get the new name.

    I dont know if there is some caching or something inside the virtual machine?

    I have also tried rebooting the host and the server running the C# code (using WMI), but still it returns the old name

    I dont have this problem with virtual machines running windows XP or 2008 R2

    I'm using linux integration services 3.2.

  • ipconfig /flushdns

    would delete the cache on Windows host. Name resolution is influenced by node type.
