it is possible to have 2 hosts with the same name in the interface.
|Assigned to:||-||% Done:||
If a user saves a host specifing the fqdn (test.example.com) and then save the same host without specifing the fqdn (test) Foreman will show 2 hosts with the same name in hosts listing. Operators seems to make some confusion about that. They see the hostname registered in host's listing but don't know if they must use fqdn or not. I would be better to be explicit about that.
I don't know if this is the best approach, but here is the patch

I think we already solved it with the latest view in 0.4.x
would you mind validating if this is still an issue?

Yeap. This issue still affects version 0.4.
I've attached a print screen. There are two hosts registered with the short name "cittavld126". The first was created without fqdn style.. and the second with fqdn.

I cannot reproduce this in 1.x develop. If you create an unmanaged host without a domain, Foreman will now append it's own domain. Thus all hosts are fully qualified, and you can't get duplicates.
Please re-open if you still hit this with the latest version.
