Section Number and Name: 1.4.1 Base Operating System
Describe the issue: Please remove the line 'When registering your host system through Red Hat Subscription Manager (RHSM), specify the type as a Red Hat Satellite server:' line as it is useless. there is a --type switch to subscription-manager register, but it is deprecated.
Suggestions for improvement: Simply remove the line.
Additional information on this request:
The verbiage in section 1,4,1 implies to the end user that the '--type=CONSUMERTYPE' switch should be used with their 'subscription-manager register' command.
However, this switch is unneeded and in some usages may present issue.
