Inconsistent Down-casing causes host page to 404
When adding a client to Foreman that has a mixed case hostname (HostName.localdomain), the host details page for this client would display a 404 error. The debug logs showed this when trying to load the host details page:
even though the reports log worked as expected:
gwmngilfen on #theforeman walked me through all the above troubleshooting and narrowed the issue down to the following line of code:
I commented out that line of code, restarted the foreman and it began to work as expected.
Thanks to gwmngilfen for all the help on this!

For clarity, this issue seems to be that the validations are not applied to hosts created via fact upload - UI-created hosts cannot have uppercase characters in, but fact-created ones can.
We should probably apply the same validations to both creation types, and add a test to ensure it.
