Change hostname

Change hostname: Linux System Engineer: Networking and SSH
Change hostname: Linux System Engineer: Networking and SSH

Find out how changing a hostname has changed from previous versions of Linux. In older versions of Red Hat, the /etc/sysconfig/network file was edited and contrasted with other types of Linux, which stored it at /etc/network. Systemd has standardized where the hostname is stored, so we use the hostnamectl command to change the system hostname and then verify it by checking the static file.
