Q. Under Windows Server 2003 I can use active directory domain tools to get information about current domain and hostname. Can you tell me command to list current domain name and hostname under Red hat enterprise Linux 5?

A. Both Linux / UNIX comes with the following utilities to display hostname / domain name:

a) hostname - show or set the system’s host name

b) domainname - show or set the system’s NIS/YP domain name

c) dnsdomainname - show the system’s DNS domain name

d) nisdomainname - show or set system’s NIS/YP domain name

e) ypdomainname - show or set the system’s NIS/YP domain name

$ hostname

$ dnsdomainname
