I clone my No.1 OS in VMware, the username and computer name are node1, now i clone it and want to make the cloned one's username and computer name became node2. how can i do ?


you can change hostname by editing /etc/hostname and user by usermod -l new_name you should also change homedir, so it would be easier to create new user? moving homedir can be done also with usermod, if necessary :)
