Changing hostname of a machine does not change the hostname listed in the satellite UI

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When a hostname of a machine under a satellite is changed, the changes do not reflect in the satellite. - Deleting the machine with the old hostname and adding the system again fixes this issue, but doing this deletes all history and settings associated with the machine.
