Description Christian Marineau 2017-11-21 17:22:19 UTC
Document URL:

Section Number and Name: 

Describe the issue: 
The major issue is the following statement:
If you change a host's status from unmanaged to managed, you must rebuild the host by clicking Build on the Host page."

This is suggesting that a Host need to be re-provision when we set it to be Managed, which is not true.

Also, the following section would need some clarification: 
"it is possible to adjust network configuration, storage, and resource allocation parameters from Satellite Server."

This is not accurate and we would need to identify clearly under what circumstance we can have such changes applied on the Hosts.

Suggestions for improvement: 
1. Remove the note
2. Review what is the scope of configuration changes made on the Managed Host that actually change anything on the Host itself. What are the limitations, and when does a Host need to be rebuild to reflect the changes.

Assigning to Clifton for review.

Clifton - this one will require a little research, but will be a good fix for us to get in for hosts.
