Red Hat Satellite engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on Satellite to Red Hat Jira ( If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs will be migrated starting at the end of May. If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Paul Dudley 2021-04-04 19:51:14 UTC
When changing the name of the datacenter compute profiles still reference the old path, seen in the api here:

Result of  GET
description            : 
url                    :
id                     : 4
name                   : vCenter_Name
provider               : Vmware
provider_friendly_name : VMware
user                   : vcenter_login
datacenter             : 
server                 :
set_console_password   : True
caching_enabled        : True

But the compute profiles associated with the updated compute resource are still using the old datacenter path of /Datacenters/<old name>/vm (which no longer exists):
From GET
id                     : 12
name                   : 2 CPUs and 2048 MB memory
compute_resource_id    : 4
compute_resource_name  : vCenter
provider_friendly_name : VMware
compute_profile_id     : 6
compute_profile_name   : Base OS
vm_attrs               : @{cpus=2; corespersocket=1; memory_mb=2048; firmware=bios; cluster=i-linux-cluster01; resource_pool=Resources; path=/Datacenters/<old name>/vm; guest_id=rhel7_64Guest; scsi_controller_type=ParaVirtualSCSIController; hardware_version=Default; 
                         memoryHotAddEnabled=0; cpuHotAddEnabled=0; add_cdrom=0; annotation=; interfaces_attributes=; volumes_attributes=}

Correcting the resource only requires editing the profile and submitting the profile again and the path is fixed, no direct changes are necessary.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite since the upstream issue has been resolved.

Comment 7 Lukáš Hellebrandt 2021-10-08 11:23:34 UTC
FailedQA with Sat 6.10.0 snap 21.0, no change in behavior noticed as compared to OP. I can, however, confirm that the code changes are present in /usr/share/foreman/app/controllers/api/v2/compute_resources_controller.rb and /usr/share/foreman/app/models/compute_resource.rb.
