Description Jack Neely 2004-05-05 13:16:40 EDT
Request for Enhancement:

I would like to put a limit on how many entitlements a user or group
(the latter I think is more practicle) can use.  

I'm running the UNC system site license for RHEL and we have
distributed the cost throughout the university system.  Folks have
requested that certain groups be limited to the number of licenses
they bought.  Its more a political thing than anything else.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN 3.2.1
Comment 1 Bret McMillan 2004-05-05 13:28:18 EDT
More recent satellites include the ability to only allow certain
individuals to subscribe systems to channels.  This doesn't address
system entitlements (basic/management/provisioning), but here's how
you can address the RHEL issue atm:

1.  Visit the RHEL channel page
2.  Make the channel *NOT* globally subscribable
3.  Visit the 'Subscribers' tab and choose which individuals in the
organization who may subscribe a system to a channel.

Does that help any?
Comment 2 Jack Neely 2004-05-11 20:52:43 EDT
Not really.  Its really a political issue.  The cost of the site
license is divided by the number of machines and folks pay for how
many machines they want to run.  I've been asked to set up groups for
these people that can only install X amount of machines.

Its not an overly useful thing, but it makes the license monkeys happy.

We have Organizations for that. I think since RHN Satellite 5.2
