Description of problem:
Reinstall has several use cases, like reconfiguration of firewall and undeploy of HE. The name should reflect that probably named 'Manage Software Components' or simply 'Manage'.
I don't see what's more clear than re-install?
It re-installs the host....
Manage? This is very unclear....
Manage Software Components? Also very unclear. What do you manage exactly? What will you do?
If HE related stuff doesn't fit there then perhaps they need their own option in the UI, and not rely on the re-install button.
Currently re-install allows you to set up a few things, like you can set those up when you install a new host.
Anyhow, I don't see how this is "high" severity, also not high priority as well.
And imho any change of name will just confuse customers and users.
I think you should consider to put the HE undeploy elsewhere, with its own option.
Moving to SLA to consider that.
I still think at the end of the day it reinstalls the host.
I certainly don't see why it's a high severity item.
Can you please consult with UX on this topic?
I guess you mean UXD.
Anyhow, you need to decide if you want to move the "undeploy" of hosted engine elsewhere.
Reinstall execute 'host-deploy' flow and at the moment we have only 2 host-deploy flows defined: install/reinstall (which HE deploy/undeploy is part of) and check for upgrade/upgrade. So it doesn't make sense for me to create 3rd host-deploy flow just for HE deploy/undeploy and it should stay within Install/Reinstall flow
2 semantic changes can solve the problem:
- Instead of Installation -> Software
- Instead of Reinstall -> Configuration
Mock-up is attached

As discussed offline, adding the hosted engine shouldn't be part of reinstall.
The reinstall option isn't configuration. It is reinstallation.
Please change the bug to extract the hosted engine configuration out ot a separate button/dialog.
Oved, we can't do that. The hosted engine deployment is part of host deploy. And there is no way to separate it right now.

You can separate to another dialog/button.
Anyway, if it is still using the re-install then it should be named that way (and the bug should be closed).
Well except for the fact that we now have menu structure like this:
Installation / Reinstall
and it opens a dialog that is called
And that sounds a bit redundant and inconsistent. I talked to Eldan and at least change to
Software / Install
might make sense.

But if the host is installed already it is re-install.
I don't see why do we want to change it.
Also, parts of the menu aren't software. Like certificates, for example.
That's why I think it should be kept as is.
Closing as wontfix.
Explanation is above.
