Description Laura Novich 2013-06-24 10:40:43 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #963884 +++

Description of problem:

The subscription management 1.0 guide states that virt-who should be installed on VCenter for VMWare users, but I'm pretty sure that's incorrect as I understand that it must be run on a RHEL machine.

See 5.3.6.2. Installing virt-who for VMWare

https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Subscription_Management/1.0/html/Subscription_Management_Guide/registering-machine-ui.html

--- Additional comment from Michael Stead on 2013-05-23 08:58:42 EDT ---

Correct. virt-who must run on a machine that is capable of registering to candlepin, as it requires a valid identity cert to communicate with candlepin. Therefore, it must be able to run subscription-manager to do so.

virt-who must then be configured to talk to VCenter in order to fetch its host/guest mappings to send to candlepin.
