Satellite 6.2 GA-ed today and users are unable to access the newly released 6.2 repositories that are part of their subscription:
Attempts to enable these repositories are met with errors that the repository does not exist:
# subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-satellite-6.2-rpms
Error: rhel-7-server-satellite-6.2-rpms is not a valid repository ID. Use --list option to see valid repositories.
attempts to run 'subscription-manager refresh' do not resolve the issue. The only work around is to completely un-register and re-register the system to get access to the newly released content:
# subscription-manager identity (make note of the system id value)
# subscription-manager clean
# subscription-manager register --consumerid=<SYSTEM_IDENTITY>
# subscription-manager remove --all
# subscription-manager attach --pool=<SATELLITE_SUB_POOL>
# subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-6-server-satellite-6.2-rpms
This appears to be an issue where a product is refreshed and if only a content set is changed the entitlement for a consumer is not marked as dirty. If I manually force certificate regeneration for the consumer with the rest API it fixes the problem.
curl -s --cert /etc/pki/consumer/cert.pem --key /etc/pki/consumer/key.pem -k -X PUT https://subscription.rhn.redhat.com/subscription/consumers/<consumer_id>/certificates

Note, the above is meant to be run on the Satellite in question. And the consumer_id is provided via 'subscription-manager identity'
An directly pasteable command is
CONSUMERID=$(subscription-manager identity | head -1 | cut -f 2 -d ":")
curl -s --cert /etc/pki/consumer/cert.pem --key /etc/pki/consumer/key.pem -k -X PUT "https://subscription.rhn.redhat.com/subscription/consumers/$CONSUMERID/certificates"
Customer is reporting that after applying the above steps:
- they now have access to rhel-7-server-satellite-6.2-rpms
- they do not have access to the capsule or tools repos for 6.2:

Is this also related with this issue or is it a different problem?
The above is a different issue. This KCS here appears to resolve the issue:
We have modified some data in the customer portal which should refresh this issue. If you are using subscription-manager please execute the following:
If you are using Satellite 6, please go to
Content -> Red Hat Subscriptions -> Manage Manifest
and click the "Refresh Manifest" button
The data should now be available.
I will leave this bug open until I get customer feedback that it is fixed.
As an additional workaround/solution to the problem, subscription manager has been updated accordingly:

1360909: The refresh command now requests entitlement cert regeneration
- When the refresh command is issued on the CLI, subman will request
entitlement certificate regeneration (lazily) for the active consumer
based on the verification step in comment 16 , moving the bug to verified
re-opening this as it appears to be re-occurring
Moving back to on_qa as the fix in sub-man 1.17 has been taken care of and verified in test environments. I cloned to it-pnt for the portal fix to open the firewall rules to enable the updates here to work. This should be moved back to verified & released
Moving back to VERIFIED per the testing in comment 16 used to verify the developer's fix in comment 13. Note that this verification applies to the subscription-manager component changes only. Additional changes are needed server-side (by IT-Candlepin) so that a subscription-manager refresh will pick up the newly released content from the entitlement server. Per comment 31, the server-side work is now being tracked in cloned bug 1373633 where all of the external trackers have been copied to.
