Mysql does not have or need a machine name. What problem are you having?
What are you trying to do and what error messages are you getting?

If it is a problem with mysql account privileges, then change them.

Mysql user privileges depend on the name of the user and the name of
the machine the user is connecting *from*. The name of the machine that
mysql is running on is irrelevant, and would be needed only when
setting up the connection on the remote machine using the mysql server's
hostname.
