The hostname command is only available if the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is installed as a network component.
The computer hostname is usually (but not always) the same as the %COMPUTERNAME% variable.
When called with any argument other than /? hostname sets errorlevel to 1 and prints an error message.
If the environment variable _CLUSTER_NETWORK_NAME_ exists and is populated, then HOSTNAME will return the value of that variable in place of the true Hostname.
