There’s no patch, but this looks like a bug in the images–ohai is faithfully reporting what
hostname says the hostname is. I’d be resistant to embedding a value judgement about hostnames into ohai. If you don’t like the hostnames, why not use chef to change them?
Your comment has caused me to re-think the way we were approaching the FQDN issue, and I think I can actually use this to our advantage the way it is.
Now that I’ve figured this out, of course Rackspace will decide to put a proper FQDN into that value and break what we’re going to try to do, but I’ll at least keep an eye out for that.
