When hostname is set to the default “localhost” then qnet will use the mac address to create a unique hostname.
On my node Qnet has created the string “EA2915c” from xxxxxx02915C where xxxxxxx is the manufactures code.
I’m not sure where EA has come from since this does resemble the manufacturers code. EA prefixes the string on all nodes since its the same manufacturer so at least its consistent.
Does anyone know how “EA” is calculated and why the manufacturer number is not used as is?
