How to change the name of hosts registered with Satellite Server 6 using the web UI?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When a host is registered in Satellite 6, certificates are created for a subscription (used by RHSM) and for Puppet. The certificates are tied to the host name (a unique FQDN). They have to be removed and recreated after changing the host name. To exchange names between two hosts, an intermediate name shall be used.
