Default Setting The Hostname

Typing in this command from the prompt.
echo server1.example.com > /etc/hostname
/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname
We get this in return -bash: /etc/hostname/bin/hostname: Not a directory.

This are two commands, first type:

Code:
echo server1.example.com > /etc/hostname
hit return, then type:

Code:
/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname
hit return.
