This a very useful One liner command to insert IP and hostname into /etc/hosts file and is particularly useful when it comes to kickstart scripts wherein you need to have /etc/hosts entry for the newly provisioned VM and get it enrolled to various applications that include Red Hat IDM/ FreeIPA and Puppet to start with.

Its possible to run a script via Alias command. All you need is to modify the .bashrc and then source the script in the required user profile. Alias commands are very useful when it comes to running shortened versions of commands or a complex script to be run using just a single line of command. Currently I use this to run 2 of my custom scripts for waking up a ESXi server via WOL (Wake-ON-LAN).
