Problem

If you made changes to the /etc/hosts file, they might be overwritten when any of the following actions occur:

  • Reboot

  • Network changes

  • Changes made in the Management console-> Network tab

  • Upgrade

Results

To make a permanent change to the /etc/hosts file, you must make the change outside of the VAMI_EDIT_BEGIN to VAMI_EDIT_END section because this section is overwritten when a network change is detected.
