Host Operating system detail doesn't match


My Ubuntu 20.04 LTS host Operating system detail doesn’t match with the real lsb_release -a

In hosts facts i can see the right operating system description in os > distro > descritption > Ubuntu

On the host detail page Operating system show : Ubuntu 20.04.1

Expected outcome:

Foreman and Proxy versions:
Foreman 2.3.3
Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:

Distribution and version:
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Other relevant data:

The Operating System table in host overview doesn’t match with facts :

  • os > distro > description
  • lsbdistdescription

Do you know where the os host overview option get the source information ?


There is also a setting to disable updating the OS from facts. I’d check that one.

Hi ekohl,

Thank you for your answer.

I don’t want to disable the updating OS. I would need the dashboard column to pull up the exact information.
Why does this column show the wrong information?
