Comment 9 John Mitsch 2017-09-27 18:48:01 UTC
You only have to update short hostnames if you are using short hostnames instead of your FQDN, FQDNs are automatically updated. 

I'll look into the issue you ran across more in detail. Just to confirm, the katello-change-hostname command was successful?
