There exists the ability to override the IP address facts with subscription-manager as reported to the Satellite during registration.

You can do this via specification of facts file outlined here:

1) On host behind NAT network, search for all subscription-manager facts containing the NAT-ed IP address:

# subscription-manager facts |grep '.*ip.*address'

net.interface.eth0.ipv6_address.link: fe80::7e60:1587:6fcc:d58c
net.interface.eth0.ipv6_address.link_list: fe80::39a3:baf8:a2e2:3303, fe80::1a59:d181:6ef6:335d, fe80::7e60:1587:6fcc:d58c
net.interface.lo.ipv6_address.host: ::1
net.interface.lo.ipv6_address.host_list: ::1
network.ipv6_address: fe80::7e60:1587:6fcc:d58c, fe80::1a59:d181:6ef6:335d, fe80::39a3:baf8:a2e2:3303

2) Edit your override file, open a new file:


3) Ensure the contents contain the ipv4 network addresses and interfaces for the

{"network.ipv4_address": "", "net.interface.eth0.ipv4_address":"","net.interface.eth0.ipv4_address_list":""}

4) Delete the host entirely from the Satellite

5) re-register the host, verify the IP address in the Host Details in the UI shows the overridden value.

6) Check if the IP address is overridden in a way that allows the Remote Execution jobs on the Satellite reach the host.

I've not tried this *exact* scenario with a NAT network because we don't have that setup in any of our labs but I can verify the override works and the Satellite will store the IP as specified in the facts file.

Let us know if this helps the situation
