Change Your Mac’s Name on Lion or Snow Leopard

Did you change the computer name in the Sharing Prefs? If you change the name under the sharing tab you should see the change reflected in the console. If you change the name on the command line, you likely will not see this in the console see the notes below. Is the machine on a Windows domain controller DNS server?

Your Answer

There is also a further difference between hostname and computer name. Hostname is typically derived from the Sharing name if not overridden by the DNS stuff or changed on the command line , but has a restricted set of characters. However, this is not a default property.
