Description Tom McKay 2014-10-31 12:47:06 UTC
While attempting to create a new host on Sat-6.0.4, I entered a Name "thomasmckay-sam" that had already been taken; proper validation red error box appeared. I then changed the name to "rpi-sam" in the form to a unique one and submitted again. The following appeared

Failed to create a compute rhevm1.satellite.lab.eng.rdu2.redhat.com (RHEV) instance rpi-sam.released-el7.satellite.lab.eng.rdu2.redhat.com: Name must be formed of alphanumeric characters, numbers or "-_.".

This leads, of course, to a situation where the entire new form must be reloaded and all values re-entered. After that the "rpi-sam" name works fine.

Upstream bug component is Hosts

Comment 5 Tomer Brisker 2016-03-17 09:36:06 UTC
I could not reproduce in current upstream - attempted to create a host with existing name, got validation error, changed name, host was created with no problem.
From upstream discussion appears the second failure (after changing the duplicate name) was caused by an invalid name given to RHEV leading to the failure and was unrelated to the previous failure.
Moving to ON_QA for verification.

# rpm -q foreman


Please, note here I checked only name "test6-sam" is accepted by the form or not

I am not sure whether the instance is created or not properly

There was no need to reload the form and re-enter the values

Comment 8 Tazim Kolhar 2016-04-05 06:05:08 UTC
Please note,

Here are the steps:

Create a host with a name already been taken.
It gives error : Name "test7-sam" that had already been taken

Then, I changed the name to "test8-sam". There was no 
need to load the form again
All other values were retained
