       nodehostnamesize - size of node name and host name

       The HP-UX operating system default configuration allows the system node
       name and host name to be up to 8 and 64 bytes in length,	 respectively.
       The  node name supports the UUCP utilities.  The host name supports the
       internet Domain Name Services (DNS) host name label.

       Setting a node name of more than 8 bytes or a host name of more than 64
       bytes  is  possible  only  with	the  appropriate configuration options

       See the whitepaper for more information.

       It is strongly recommended that all related documentation be completely
       understood  before  setting  a  larger  node or host name.  A node name
       larger than 8 bytes, or host name  larger  than	64  bytes,  can	 cause
       anomalous behavior or failure in applications which use the and/or com‐
       mands or the and/or system functions to obtain the names.
