Changing the hostname of Juniper

In this lesson, I will show you simply how you can change the name of the Juniper (also called Hostname).

Let’s see what the current hostname on the Juniper router is:


It is “R1”. Let’s change it and make it “Juniper”:

root@R1# set system host-name Juniper



I have changed it but it is not yet applied on the router because we did not yet commit the configuration. I will proceed by committing the configuration and see if it will change:

root@R1# commit

commit complete



Here we go, it has been changed successfully to Juniper 😊

See you in the upcoming lesson!
