Description Marc Richter 2015-08-24 14:24:21 EDT
Document URL: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Satellite/6.1/html/Installation_Guide/sect-Red_Hat_Satellite-Installation_Guide-Prerequisites.html#form-Red_Hat_Satellite-Installation_Guide-Prerequisites-Base_Operating_System

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.
