I have a pair of r5600 appliance running F5OS. I went through the initial configuration and set the hostname to let say ABCD and the admin CLI prompt was set correctly to ABCD. But when I logged into the device as root, the linux hostname didn't change and was still at the default of "appliance-1.chassis.local" I have a few of these appliances and it is quite confusing as I can't tell which system I am on.
Question 1:Can I change it to match the hostname I set in the F5OS config?
Question2: Do I do change it by modifying /etc/hostname ?
Question 2: Will it affect anything?
