Comment 3 Stephen Wadeley 2018-11-16 15:52:12 UTC

This bug was incorrectly titled: The supported procedure was and is restoring onto a new install of Satellite, not just a RHEL server. But no additonal configuration should be made. The guide was made a bit more explicit on this point[1]

If you follow the procedures in the guides for making back ups and restoring from those backs, we believe they work.

Where you want to move a move a Satellite from one server to another, you should use the Satellite clone procedures[2]. The case in comment 0 appears to fit that use case for clone, not the use case of the restore script.

Thank you
