Description Fred van Zwieten 2015-07-03 06:51:48 UTC
Description of problem:
virt-who requires a RHEL system subscribed to satellite to be able to function. As I understand it this is because it uses subscription-manager (API) to communicate with satellite. I propose to change virt-who in a way that it is one of the optional features of a capsule (including the embedded capsule). It should be configurable using katello-installer and/or capsule-installer. It is part of the subscription-management part of satellite and as such should *just work*.

Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and we do not expect this to be implemented in product in the forseeable future. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please feel free to contact Rich Jerrido or Bryan Kearney. Thank you.
