Description Chris Snyder 2015-12-14 15:51:07 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1291420 +++

Description of problem:
Presently there exists no way to auto attach to virtual pools only.
When consuming subscriptions on a virtualized guest there are often times that a subscription is provided simply by being associated with a particular hypervisor.
It seems there is no way to capture the intent to consume only the subscription provided due to the relationship between the guest and the host.

Actual results:
It is not possible to auto attach just virtual pools (without specifying which pools to use).

There is no option to specify auto attaching to virtual pools only

Expected results:
It is possible to auto attach just from virtual pools (without specifying which pools to use).

There is an option that modifies auto attach to look only at virtual pools from the hypervisor.

`subscription-manager attach --auto --from-hypervisor`
