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

Solution Verified - Updated -


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 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.

./ --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 \

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 script can be found in /usr/share/doc/katello-client-bootstrap-*/ on any Satellite or Capsule Server.
