Fixed In Version: virt-who-0.12-1.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, virt-who used the value of the "--esx-server" command-line option instead of the "--satellite-server" option value. As a consequence, virt-who attempted to report a host-guest association to the ESX server instead of satellite, and thus failed. With this update, "--satellite-server" works as intended, and virt-who uses the correct server when connecting to Red Hat Satellite.

Comment 4 Radek Novacek 2015-03-19 11:25:43 UTC
From developer point of view, backporting the patch is trivial. But GSS or PM have to request the z-stream.

Comment 5 Radek Novacek 2015-03-19 12:41:21 UTC
This bug is fixed in y-stream by rebase of virt-who to virt-who-0.12-1.el6.

Comment 8 Liushihui 2015-04-09 06:51:26 UTC
Verified it on virt-who-0.12-2.el6.noarch

Verified version:

Verified process:
1. Register rhel to Satellite-5.7
2. Run virt-who in esx mode in cmd, virt-who has send host/guest associate to satellite

3.Check the Satellite UI, two hypervisors have shown in "System"

Result: According to the result in step2 and step3, virt-who has send the host/guest mapping to Satellite , therefore, verify it.
