Created a new Satellite server on new hardware with a new hostname, this was installed as a 5.4 satellite server. Then did an rhn-satellite-export to an NFS share for the cloned channels only, and imported them onto the new Satellite server.

repodata/clone-rhel-x86_64-server-5 :total 8 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 66 Dec 14 22:08 noyumrepo.txt
