Description Anand Vaddarapu 2015-08-31 00:21:31 EDT
Description of problem:
I have tested to register RHEV's hypervisors thick hypervisor using --type=hypervisor using RHEL6.7's subscription-manager, which didn't work to register the host after the provisioning.  It was registered as a "host", even though I used "hypervisor" as a type.

Actual results:
It was registered as a "host", even though I used "hypervisor" as a type.

Expected results:
My hope that above command would register the hypervisor as "hypervisor" rather than "host".

Where are you seeing the system listed as type "Host"?

When I look in the database after registration using 
subscription management server:
subscription management rules: 5.15.2
subscription-manager: 1.15.9-15.el7
python-rhsm: 1.15.4-5.el7

and Sat 6.2 it is properly recorded as type hypervisor.
Comment 4 Tom McKay 2016-03-07 14:51:43 EST
The term "host" is overused in Sat-6 a lot. Hypervisors are not listed differently than other physical systems. 

If there are specific enhancements that are desired, please reopen this as an RFE with detailed usecase.
