Hello All:

I am trying to set the hostname of VMs at boot time and banging my head against the wall. I am using

virsh create xen-config.xml

to boot a Scientific Linux 5.5 image. I have gone through the libvirt domain xml format at


and I don't see anywhere to set the hostname in there. I am using pygrub for the bootloader and noticed the "bootloader_args" element. Can I pass an argument to the kernel at boot to set the hostname? Nothing I have tried seems to work. Any help would be appreciated.
