@ASHISH Rastogi I'm not sure if I understand your question, so I hope this answers it

Assuming your hostname is "hw1.localdomain". Replace hw1.localdomain to anything you want (e.g.

1) Change /etc/config to something like this:   localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1         localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6      hw1 hw1.localdomain

Also add any other IP/Hosts in your cluster just like the last line.

2) No IP is required for /etc/sysconfig/networking


3) Assuming you are on CentOS 6.x, run the commands given on the page. For example.

setenforce 0

This will have to be reset every time you reboot unless you follow the note. You can verify that it is set by running "getenforce" and it should either print "Disabled" or "Permissive"

Also, if you're running PackageKit, follow step #2.

And finally, just run the command which sets default permissions as 755 (rwxr-x-r-x)

umask 0022

That setting is usually the default, but you can check by running "umask" with no arguments.
