Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1021013
RHEL7 firstboot: missing option to skip Subscription Management Registration
Last modified: 2014-06-17 20:27:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Former RHEL5 and RHEL6 versions of firstboot with rhn-setup-gnome provided a function to skip choosing a server for Red Hat Registration updates.
This same functionality is needed in subscription-manager-firstboot for RHEL7 to skip registration to Red Hat Subscription Management.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@jsefler-7 ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager-firstboot
Workarounds, I have not tested but you can likely drop to a terminal and remove the subscription-manager-firstboot rpm, then re-start firstboot.
The issue is fixed in subscription-manager.git master 96c7d8f9caf9b6da99b7a5f81184caa723608128.
This should be present in RHEL 7 builds by the end of the week. You'll be looking for subscription-manager 1.10.6 or greater.

# rpm -q subscription-manager-firstboot firstboot
VERIFIED: The screenshot demonstrates the ability to skip registration in firstboot.
The screenshot also has some verbage circled in red that should be changed.
The address of an RHN Satellite or RHN Proxy <=== no longer appropriate
The address of a Subscription Management Service <=== matches the next panel

Can be see from the attachment that there is an option to skip firstboot registration.
