Description Rich Jerrido 2017-06-13 06:42:34 EDT
Description of problem:

The --type option of the subscription-manager register command, which is used to control which consumer type is created when a user registers a system, should be removed as

- For an end user, there is no reason to use an option other than --type=system (which is the default) 
- Occasionally Satellite users will use the --type satellite option which causes issues if the consumer is ever deleted (as they've created a distributor which gets removed if they ever run subscription-manager unregister)

To remove confusion, and lower case volume, the --type command should be removed.
