CHECK-HOSTNAME(1M) Maintenance Commands CHECK-HOSTNAME(1M)


NAME


check-hostname - check if sendmail can determine the system's fully-
qualified host name

SYNOPSIS


/usr/sbin/check-hostname


DESCRIPTION


The check-hostname script is a migration aid for sendmail(1M). This
script tries to determine the local host's fully-qualified host name
(FQHN) in a manner similar to sendmail(1M). If check-hostname is able to
determine the FQHN of the local host, it reports success. Otherwise,
check-hostname reports how to reconfigure the system so that the FQHN can
be properly determined.
