Creating a distribution with spacecmd sets localhost instead of FQDN

This document (7018627) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Manager 3


When creating a distribution with spacecmd it will set localhost as server name and not the FQDN of the SUSE Manager. This will result in a kernel option like:


Please make sure to use the FQDN in $HOME/.spacecmd/config, e.g.:
test:~/.spacecmd # cat config


This problem may be experienced if $HOME/.spacecmd/config has been created and the server name option was set to localhost.
