Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 67628
Hostname not checked/set during install
Last modified: 2007-07-31 15:04:39 EDT
Description of Problem: Satellite throws a cookie error if the server is not
using the same fully qualified domain name for itself and for the Apache server.
Installer should check the domain name, prompt the user for one or something
similar, and set the system hostname accordingly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): See bug 63780
the installer sets the hostname to the fqdn that is
returned by socket.gethostname()
If we are allowing the server to be address
via different hostname via http than it thinks
it is, we need to prompt for a hostname, or
tell the user to modify it themselves.
The original spec indicated that the installer
should just discover the servers hostname and
use that directly, if it needed to be something
else, thats what the config files are for. Is
this no longer the case?
OK, closing, will ask for better verbage and a warning in bug 67630
