Document URL: 


Section Number and Name: Chapter 6. Maintaining a Red Hat Satellite Server

Describe the issue: With the addition of the RFE here:


we need a new section in the Server Admin guide on how to change the hostname of the Satellite server. This new utility will be called 'satellite-change-hostname' and has fairly simple set of arguments:

# satellite-change-hostname --help
Usage: satellite-change-hostname HOSTNAME [OPTIONS]

 satellite-change-hostname foo.example.com -u admin -p changeme

    -u, --username USERNAME          admin username (required)
    -p, --password PASSWORD          admin password (required)
    -g, --program PROGRAM            name of the program you are modifying (defaults to satellite)
    -S, --scenario SCENARIO          name of the scenario you are modifying (defaults to satellite)
    -d, --disable-system-checks      runs the installer with --disable-system-checks
    -y, --assumeyes                  Answer yes for all questions
    -h, --help                       help

Feel free to reach out to John Mitsch as he is the engineer responsible for this new command and feature.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for raising this bug.

We already have a tracker for this update, which has been assigned and is currently being worked on as BZ#1451564.

I'll close this one as a duplicate, and update that bug so that it is clear that the content needs to be included in the 6.2 z-stream docs.

Kind regards,
