10.8. Managing Hosts

The following procedure shows how to switch a host between Managed and Unmanaged status. If the host is set to be managed, it is possible to adjust network configuration, storage, and resource allocation parameters from Satellite Server.
Hosts provisioned by Satellite are managed by default. If there is a necessity to obtain reports about configuration management in systems using an operating system not supported by Satellite it is recommended to unmanage the host.
  1. Navigate to HostsAll hosts.
  2. Select the host.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Click Manage host or Unmanage host to change the host's status.
  5. Click Submit to save the changes.


If you change a host's status from unmanaged to managed, you must rebuild the host by clicking Build on the Host page.
