Change hostname of a system attached to Satellite 6.4

Latest response

Once the hostname is changed on our RHEL system attached to the satellite, is there a hammer or any other commands that we can use, instead of going in to the Satellite 6.4 web UI and changing it there?

Hello Gene,

Maybe the following access.redhat.com article is what you are looking for?

Thanks, Joe

Thanks Joe,

I saw that link before but what I was actually looking for and found is. hammer host update --name --new-name <hostname.example.com>

Thats done in satellite cli after changing the hostname on the client server.

Good to know. The last Satellite I set up and configured was 5.8 with spacewalk and turned to googling to try and assist. I'll have to remember that for the future. Thanks!

This was it back then. :)
