Unless I am missing something, I just did a basic SQL statement and

Obviously, this does not copy the data, but rather changes it. Works for 
my situation, but yes, you might want to make a copy of all the records 
before making the change, then update it based on the ID #...

Personally, I consider this a bug in the script that runs when one wants 
to create a host based on an existing host setup.
