I can't speak for SuSE nor do I know how you changed your hostname, but
I can tell you this, if you used the plain hostname command that change
will not persist across reboots. See the hostname man page on your
system for how to make a permanent change. Also, if your machine is
being assigned a permanent IP address via a local DHCP server you will
likely have to make that change in the DHCP configuration.
