"has already been taken" When Reusing Short Names


When creating new EC2 instance with different domains, I’m unable to reuse short names.



Instead, I receive the following error message:

has already been taken

Is this a expected or bug? If the latter, I can open up a ticket. I just want to check beforehand to make sure I’m not doing something incorrectly.

Expected outcome:

I’m able to create both instances with the same short name since they have two different FQDNs.

Foreman and Proxy versions:

Foreman 1.20.0-RC2

Other relevant data:
