Setting the FQDN

Another quick tip for those like me who are consolely challenged... A linux machine's Fully Qualified Domain Name is set in the /etc/hosts file. The entry just needs to be something like this:

127.0.0.1 medway.riverside.forensit.com medway localhost

You can check the FQDN by running hostname with the -f switch.
