After renaming a machine called "ubuntu64" to "services", I now see the attached image for my Host page. Looks like the rename is missing a step somewhere. All DNS etc seems ok, so it's just cosmetic.

Unable to replicate
Title in view is @host.to_label --> Seems OK.

Like Joseph, I can't reproduce this. Greg, can you provide more info or try again with develop?

I can reproduce it, but only on Libvirt hosts, not Bare Metal (haven't tried other hypervisors). I've sent Amos a ton of debug info. Specifically, look at the <title> page element on a Libvirt hosts it gets doubled up:


Despite this, it renders properly (weird). More weird is what happens when you rename this host - only one of the duplicates changes:


I suspect it's related to the fact that the name change doesn't alter the underlying XML from libvirt, and we're using it somehow....

I tried again and could not reproduce

  • Status changed from Assigned to Resolved

At some point the title used to show both the libvirt "domain" name and our record of the hostname. The CR name has been removed since.
