Description of problem:
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Subscription_Management/1/html-single/Using_Subscription_Asset_Manager/index.html#sam-install-yum

The current SAM installation documentation above only covers subscription-manager scenario instructions for connected install.  It needs to cover RHN Classic scenario as well, which is basically register with classic tooling (instead of subscription-manager), and then subscribe to "SAM for RHEL Server (v. 6 64-bit x86_64)" (channel sam-rhel-x86_64-server-6) Child Channel in addition to the RHEL 6 base channel.

And highlight that the RHSM is the recommended method of installation over RHN Classic method.

Comment 4 Bryan Kearney 2017-06-26 20:34:59 UTC
The release of Satellite 5.8 we are deprecating the support of Subscription Asset Manager. The release notes for 5.8 can be found at https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/5.8/pdf/release_notes/Red_Hat_Satellite-5.8-Release_Notes-en-US.pdf.

I am therefore closing out this bug as WONTFIX. If you believe this to be an error, please feel free tor each out to either Rich Jerrido or Bryan Kearney. Thank you!
