`system domain-name` statement doesn't allow domain names ending in a dot on latest 1.2.0
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In my 1.1.8 deployment the system domain-name statement allowed a domain name ending in a dot (i.e. thus "rooted"), like for example something. (i.e. with a dot . after something.)

However after upgrading to 1.2.0 201904151631 the system fails to properly configure the system name (including the host-name statement). However manually re-configuring the domain-name, it gives a warning about the extra dot.

I would say that the domain-name statement should allow domain names ending in a dot, or if it is considered forbidden, then the migration script should trim that character upon migration.

This is actually disabllowed by latest Debian/systemd hostnamectl. A migration script is required though.
