It's been a couple of years since I've needed to configure a linux
client (my Solaris systems are still running their old BB clients). And
I'm confused with what I'm seeing. This is on a _very_ minimal server
installation with client; compiled from source.
I have files in ~/client/tmp/ of the form msg.xymonx.state.ak.us.txt (so
fully-qualified host.domain name). Yet the first line of that file is:
client xymonx.linux linux
So the message body being sent to the xymon server contains the short
host name. But the client is writing the file onto the disk with the
The xymon server reports my client messages as 'ghosts', and correctly
picks them up if I put a client alias in hosts.cfg
I'd like to do away with that alias.
Where is my linux client picking up this short name?
Do things because you should, not just because you can.
