Description of problem:
[RFE]: Entitlements cannot be changed from DEMO to NONE on multiple
machines in 1 account.
I have a basic subscription service which means that I can now no
longer have more than 1 machine in my account.
i.e. If I have 2 machines, A and B, I cannot change A from DEMO to
NONE to let me change B from NONE to DEMO since I can only have 1
machine entitled at any one time. I have to delete machi
Up until today, I could change entitlements of multiple machines at will.
This is a pain as I will now need to create an account per machine.
Why have RedHat done this ? Keeping multiple machines updated is now
more difficult with RedHat than Microsoft...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Entitlements cannot be changed from DEMO to NONE
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log onto redhat nework
2. Attempt to change entitlement from DEMO to NONE
3. Machine cannot be reentitled from NONE to DEMO
This was done because if you have multiple systems, you should be
purchasing entitlements instead of re-using them:

In particular, section 2. "Customer may not use one subscription for
Services for more than one system concurrently."
