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.

Environment

SUSE Manager 3

Situation

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:
install=http://localhost/ks/dist/<distributionname>

Resolution

Please make sure to use the FQDN in $HOME/.spacecmd/config, e.g.:
test:~/.spacecmd # cat config
[spacecmd]
server=test.mytest.env
username=admin
password=password
nossl=0

Cause

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