Transfer Hosts from non-FIPS Satellite 6.4 infrastructure to new Satellite 6.5 infrastructure

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

Current Satellite (v6.4) was built on a non-FIPS mode OS (because it could not be).
A new FIPS-compliant Satellite 6.5 and Capsules have been built.
Provided below is an example bootstrap.py command that can be used to transfer the systems from the non-FIPS enabled Satellite to the FIPS enabled Satellite. Please tailor to your environment.

./bootstrap.py --login=<login>  \
  --server=<satellite_fqdn> \
  --organization="your_org" \
  --location="your_location" \
  --hostgroup="hostgroup" \
  --activationkey="activation_key" \
  --enablerepos=rhel-7-server-extras-rpms,rhel-7-server-optional-rpms, rhel-7-server-satellite-tools-6.5-rpms,rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms \
  --force

Other than changing the tools to 6.5 is there anything else that needs to be added to the bootstrap parameters?
Additional useful options to the bootstrap.py script can be found in /usr/share/doc/katello-client-bootstrap-*/README.md on any Satellite or Capsule Server.
