Description Justin Sherrill 2016-08-15 15:46:37 UTC
Description of problem:

Currently subscription-manager does not upload fqdn with its facts, only equivalent of 'hostname'.  It would be very useful for it to also upload the equivalent of 'hostname -f'

I expect this would be uploaded as something like 'network.fqdn'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  configure your system such that 'hostname' returns the host's shortname, and 'hostname -f' returns the fqdn
2.  Run 'subscription-manager facts --list | grep fqdn'

Actual results:
no fqdn listed

Expected results:
should upload fqdn.

Additional info:
This is extremely important for Satellite 6.2 and we are planning on building in support for this fact.

Some 3rd party software requires 'hostname' be set to the shortname.

Retested on ;

subscription management server:
subscription management rules: 5.15.1
subscription-manager: 1.19.8-1.el7
python-rhsm: 1.19.5-1.el7

The test system is configured to have a short hostname along with FQDN 

# hostname

# hostname -s

# hostname -f

Now verify the fact value of network.fqdn,

# subscription-manager facts --list | grep fqdn
network.fqdn: bkr-hv03-guest06.dsal.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com

# subscription-manager facts --list | grep network
network.fqdn: bkr-hv03-guest06.dsal.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com
network.hostname: bkr-hv03-guest06.dsal.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com

Observed that now fqdn fact value is collected along with the already existing fact network.hostname.

Marking as Verified!!
