In F5 unix shell you can print hostname name by typing command
>>> settings = bigip.sys.global_settings.load() >>> print settings.hostname LAB1.mydomain.com >>>
Alternatively you can refer this
set hostname [tmsh::get_config /sys global-settings hostname] puts [tmsh::get_field_value [lindex $hostname 0] hostname]
I wasn't able to get the code from f5_rock to work (it's most likely my fault) but I did get the hostname with the code below. It's a little verbose because I had to run the tmsh command to show the settings and then I used .lstrip and .strip to clean the data up. Happy coding!
from f5.bigip import ManagementRoot mgmt = ManagementRoot("your_f5_ip_address", 'username', 'password') x = mgmt.tm.util.bash.exec_cmd('run', utilCmdArgs='-c "tmsh list sys global-settings hostname | grep "hostname""') hostname = str(x.commandResult) hostname = hostname.strip().lstrip('hostname').strip() print(hostname)
