Description of problem:
Some users would like to restore from a backup of an old install of Satellite Server onto a freshly installed Satellite Server, not just a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server.
Postgres fail while restoring
No Postgres fail while restoring
Bug 1564435 - Postgres fail while restoring
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
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. The case in comment 0 appears to fit that use case for clone, not the use case of the restore script.
