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

How reproducible:

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

Comment 1 Josef Komenda 2003-11-07 10:38:41 EST
This was done because if you have multiple systems, you should be
purchasing entitlements instead of re-using them:

Please see details in the RHN Terms and Conditions: 

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