Assigning to Charles for review.
Comment 7 Andrew Dahms 2017-09-06 21:37:55 EDT
Changing the assignee to Clifton.

Clifton - the documentation for this bug is ready, but as per the comments above, we need to keep an eye on this until the related bug has been addressed.

Let's wait until that bug has been completed for now, and close this out after we can confirm if any changes took place.
Comment 8 Christian Marineau 2017-10-10 15:45:36 EDT

From the tests and verification I've made, the correct option would actually be "--foreman-proxy-fqdn" and /not/ "--node-fqdn". If you are not using the correct parameter, it will not throw error, but the generated command will not be accurate: the "foreman-proxy-trusted-hosts" will not be showing the Capsule fqdn.

Here would be the correct command:
# capsule-certs-generate --foreman-proxy-fqdn capsule.remote.example.com --certs-tar ~/capsule.remote.example.com-certs.tar

Hello Christian

Thanks for reporting your tests. We are waiting for BZ#1458749 to be resolved before we make changes.

Changing from --capsule-fqdn to --foreman-proxy-fqdn looks like a regression to me (in branding changes possibly).

Thank you

Hello Eric

Please see comment 8 and comment 9

Please confirm the command that should be used in docs.

Thank you
Comment 11 Eric Helms 2017-10-11 08:28:07 EDT
The correct command is now:

capsule-certs-generate --foreman-proxy-fqdn capsule.remote.example.com --certs-tar ~/capsule.remote.example.com-certs.tar

This is not a branding regression.
Comment 12 Stephen Wadeley 2017-10-11 09:18:22 EDT
