- Red Hat Satellite 6.3.1
- Red Hat Satellite 6.2.15
Host registration to Satellite fails with:
"Validation Failed: Host has already been taken"
Alternatively, reregistrations may fail as well (with XXXX being a registration UUID):
"Consumer with id XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXX could not be found"
This issue is resolved with release of Red Hat Satellite 6.3.3.
Should you run into this issue, please open a ticket with Red Hat Support.
Ensure that you are running into this bug by doing the following:
1) Enter the foreman-rake console
# foreman-rake console
2) Destroy the content & subscription facets, then the host itself using rails:
irb(main):001:0> Host.find_by_name("rhel7.example.com").content_facet.destroy! irb(main):002:0> Host.find_by_name("rhel7.example.com").subscription_facet.destroy! irb(main):003:0> Host.find_by_name("rhel7.example.com").destroy!
3) Try once again to register the host, and you should see the message:
Validation Failed: Host has already been taken
4) Subsequent attempts to register (with force) will yield the message:
Consumer with id XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXX could not be found
