Keep hostname while using DHCP

If you configured your system to use a certain hostname it is possible that when connecting your system to a network as a dhcp-client that your hostname will be removed.

To keep your original hostname :

Say your primary interface is : eno16777736, then

Create file [ /etc/dhcp/dhclient-eno16777736.conf ]

interface “eno16777736”
supersede host-name “<your original hostname>”;


Restart your network and your hostname should be remained
