    When i run /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

    I receive the message of [Cpanel::Sys]: Unable to determine correct hostname


    I checked /etc/hosts and the first line is
    ::1 cpanel-linux1.maskeddomain.org

    I checked /etc/sysconfi/network and I have the following line in the file
    HOSTNAME=cpanel-linux1

    Any ideas on what could be going wrong?

    Thanks and happy holidays.

    Try this solution...got from one forum...


    Code:
    I ran into this same problem: lfd on This account is currently not available.:
    
    Because of this hostname problem, cPanel Licensing couldn't properly check and WHM/cPanel returned that very pleasant licensing error screen.
    Code:
    
    root@peblbich[~]# /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt
    [Cpanel::Sys]: Unable to determine correct hostname
    Updating Internal cPanel Information.....Done
    root@peblbich[~]#
    
    Even though:
    Code:
    
    root@peblbich[~]# vi /etc/hosts
    ::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1               localhost
    111.22.232.111      peblbich peblbich.heplansnoslime.com
    
    root@peblbich[~]# lynx -dump http://www.cpanel.net/showip.cgi
    
       Your ip is: 111.22.232.111
    
    Theoretically, everything should have worked, except it didn't.
    
    To resolve, I removed the hostname and FQDN from the /etc/hosts file, like so:
    
    Code:
    
    root@peblbich[~]# vi /etc/hosts
    
    ::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1               localhost
    111.22.232.111
    
    Then set the hostname:
    Code:
    
    root@peblbich[~]# hostname peblbich.heplansnoslime.com
    root@peblbich[~]#
    
    After which I edited the hosts file again and added "peblbich" as a hostname in front of the FQDN again; saved and exited.
    
    Now running the cPanel license update returned:
    Code:
    
    root@peblbich[~]# /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt
    Updating Internal cPanel Information.....Done
    root@peblbich[~]#
    
    This cleared both of my problems: lfd's hostname error and cPanel's license issue.

    Cheers!!!

    thanks for the info. I just used the hostname command and it worked. Very simple.
