I'm trying to change my computer's name in DNS so that others on the same subnet can refer to it by its new name -
however, whatever changes I make in /etc/hosts and by using 'hostname' to use the new_host_name and shutting-down and starting, DNS still gives me the old host name.
- I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 On...c
- All my colleagues/partners are on the same 172.xx.30.xxx subnet
Q1. How do I make the change permanent in DNS?
Q2. Will this ensure that other computers can see my computer with the new *new_host_name*?
Thanks in advance for any guidance and answers,
