Description Jan Hutař 2016-03-22 07:17:21 UTC
Description of problem:
Registering guest (running on unregistered host) consumes regular instead of flex entitlement with spacewalk-backend-2.3.3-39.el6sat.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Ensure you are on virtual system (whose host is not registered into
   same Satellite):
     # grep -e QEMU -e KVM /proc/cpuinfo 
     model name	: QEMU Virtual CPU version (cpu64-rhel6)
     model name	: QEMU Virtual CPU version (cpu64-rhel6)
1. with spacewalk-backend-2.3.3-33.el6sat.noarch:
     # rhnreg_ks --force --username=<user> --password=<pass>
   API org.listSoftwareEntitlements(key) returns:
     {'unallocated_flex': 999, 'used': 0, 'name': 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)', 'allocated_flex': 1, 'used_flex': 1, 'free': 0, 'label': 'rhel-server-6', 'free_flex': 0, 'unallocated': 14000, 'allocated': 0}
     => GOOD, Flex entitlement is used
2. with spacewalk-backend-2.3.3-39.el6sat.noarch:
     # rhnreg_ks --force --username=<user> --password=<pass>
   API org.listSoftwareEntitlements(key) returns:
     {'unallocated_flex': 1000, 'used': 1, 'name': 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)', 'allocated_flex': 0, 'used_flex': 0, 'free': 0, 'label': 'rhel-server-6', 'free_flex': 0, 'unallocated': 13999, 'allocated': 1}
     => BAD, regular entitlement is used

Actual results:
On latest version of the package, guest does not consume flex entitlements

Expected results:
Should consume flex entitlement.

Comment 2 Jan Hutař 2016-03-22 11:09:39 UTC
As a workaround you can always go to Overview -> Subscription Management ->  Virtualization Entitlements -> Guests Consuming Regular Entitlements and switch systems to use FLEX manually.

Comment 5 Jan Dobes 2016-03-22 16:51:54 UTC
fixed in spacewalk master (even if the problem is not there):
