    Under section 5 "5 Configure The Network" after editing the hosts file:

    Then edit /etc/hosts. Make it look like this:

    vi /etc/hosts

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.0.100 server1.example.com server1

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

    Now run

    echo server1.example.com > /etc/hostname

    and reboot the system:

    shutdown -r now​

    When I run:
    Afterwards, run

    hostname
    hostname -f

    Both should show server1.example.com. ​

    the second command's result is localhost.localdomain as opposed to the expected server1.example.com. Here is my host file at that point:

    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost server1.example.com
    192.168.0.100 server1.example.com server1

    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts ​
