Description Mike McCune 2013-03-21 16:14:09 UTC
Spacewalk has a tool called 'spacewalk-hostname-rename' that will update the certificates and configurations on the spacewalk server so it can be migrated to a new hostname.

We need this for katello as well.  The current process to change your Katello hostname is undocumented and painful.

Does this BZ cover changing hostname of Satellite only, or also Capsule (there are customers with both requests)?

Comment 33 John Mitsch 2017-09-14 17:37:35 UTC
I updated my MR to fix the installation media paths, peter tested it with success, it is now merged. 

I reviewed Evgeni's upstream PRs for the issues he mentioned, one is merged, one is waiting on a rebase, and the third is waiting on the contributor. Thanks Evgeni!

I'll submit an upstream PR for http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/20925 and link up these issues with this BZ. After these are merged we will be all set.
