Chromebook Hostname

Getting noticed

Chromebook Hostname

With version 76 of ChromeOS there is now a setting in the Google Admin console for the Chromebooks

 

DHCP Hostname
Set the hostname that is passed to the DHCP server with the DHCP request. Possible variables are ${ASSET_ID}, ${SERIAL_NUM}, and ${MAC_ADDR}. Please include at least one variable.

 

With this set will that mean that chromebooks will now show up in the client list with whichever variable we set instead of the long string of numbers that means nothing?

 

Thanks

You would like to think that was the case ... let us know the result.

Re: Chromebook Hostname

Why we can't currently set a hostname on a Chromebook only Google knows the answer to that. It would be very useful though.
