Description of problem:
reactivation key can be used to register rhel5 systems to rhel4 channels.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. register 2 systems (rhel4 & rhel5)(system1 & system2) and give provisioning
2 create reactivation keys for both the systems.
3. reactivate system1 (rhel4) with the reactivation key of system2 (rhel5).
reactivation key can be used to register rhel5 systems to rhel4 channels
on further investigation I noticed that the system profile name remains that of
the rhel5 system of which the reactivation key was used. but the host name/ip
address is of the rhel4 system which I registered using the reactivation key.
