Как поменять hostname, computername и bonjour name в OS X

ComputerName is the so-called “user-friendly” name for the Mac, it’s what will show up on the Mac itself and what will be visible to others when connecting to it over a local network. This is also what’s visible under the Sharing preference panel.

scutil --set ComputerName "MacBook Willy"

HostName is the name assigned to the computer as visible from the command line, and it’s also used
by local and remote networks when connecting through SSH and Remote Login.

scutil --set HostName "centauri"

LocalHostName is the name identifier used by Bonjour and visible through file sharing services likeAirDrop

scutil --set LocalHostName "MacBookPro"


scutil --get HostName
