Description of problem:
Within the Satellite web console under System -> Details -> Properties, if I try to change any field for any system that is managed by the Satellite server, I always get the following error message:
"A system name must contain only ascii characters."
At first, I thought it was one of my Solaris machines that I'm manaing with Satellite, but it's the same for all the RHEL machines.
I found the bug when I was trying to change the entitlements for the Solaris system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log onto Satellite server web console
2. Go to "Systems" and choose one of the listed systems
3. Under "System properties" choose "Edit these properties"
4. Change any value and/or tick-box to produce the error message
Actual Results: Error message "A system name must contain only ascii characters." appeared and record wasn't updated.
Expected Results: Record should have been updated.
Fixed in the upcoming satellite 5.0 or greater
