Can you please look at the following section and let me know if anything is incorrect?


Thank you
Laura Novich

Laura, it looks good from virt-who perspective, but I'm not familiar with subscription-manager that well. It would be better if someone from Satellite6 team recheck it. Chris, can you take a look?
Comment 4 Chris Snyder 2015-11-17 15:49:17 EST
On the step "Create a virt-who configuration file", there should be an opening bracket ('[') in front of "libvirt]".

Everything looks good as far as subscription-manager goes.
Comment 5 Chris Snyder 2015-11-17 17:03:25 EST
It might be worth mentioning somewhere in there that running subscription-manager remove --all followed by subscription-manager attach --auto will not necessarily result in attaching to the same pools (the ones that were removed).

To list available subscriptions for system type virtual:
`subscription-manager list --avail --match-installed | grep 'Virtual' -B12'

The subscriptions listed here are those that match the installed products, are available, and are for virtual systems only.

Choose from those listed and attach using the pool id:
`subscription-manager attach --<POOL_ID_HERE>`

Chris can you supply me with some sample output?
Comment 24 Chris Snyder 2016-01-04 17:28:23 EST
Output for the first command:
Subscription Name: Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (Basic for Virtualization)
Provides:          Red Hat Beta
                   Oracle Java (for RHEL Server)
                   Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server
SKU:               -------
Pool ID:           ------------------------------
Available:         40
Suggested:         1
Service Level:     Basic
Service Type:      L1-L3
Multi-Entitlement: No
Ends:              01/02/2017
System Type:       Virtual

I have removed the SKU number and the Pool ID from the above output.

Output for the second command:
Successfully attached a subscription for: Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (Basic for Virtualization)
