It should be coming out as admin-server and then monitorwaves.no-ip.org right?
The "hostname" doesn't come from the file "hosts" it comes from the file /etc/hostname, which must resolve to something with the resolver.
So in your case make /etc/hostname read "admin-desktop", and run
Code:
hostname -F /etc/hostname
then your
Code:
hostname -f
will work
