Satellite 6: `hammer host create` doesnt work with `--hostgroup-title`

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When using nested hostgroups and duplicate hostgroup names hammer command fails because the "hostgroup" is not unique. But tying with parameter --hostgroup-title (which is unique) fails as well
  • Why does hammer host create not work with parameter --hostgroup-title
  • --hostgroup-title seems to be an invalid option for hammer host create
  • Why do I get the following error when trying to create a new host with parameter --hostgroup-title ?
# hammer host create  --hostgroup-title HG-test-nested/test2 --name test-server-nested --ip --mac 11:12:13:14:15:16
Could not create the host:
  Error: Options --environment-id, --architecture-id, --domain-id, --puppet-proxy-id, --operatingsystem-id, --partition-table-id are required
