Description Preetesh Sharma 2017-07-04 03:38:05 EDT
Document URL: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/6.2/html-single/virtual_instances_guide/#configuration_sources

Section Number and Name: 5.2. Creating a User for virt-who

Describe the issue: Need to add a note in above section that when a user name is added in virt-who configuration file in front of option "rhsm_username" user must have access to login into satellite 6.
Problem occurs when user is coming from third party application like Active Directory, IDM etc and it do not has access to login into satellite 6. 

Suggestions for improvement: 

Additional information: User need to have satellite access to gather information while mapping host-guest details.

Assigning to Zac for review.

Zac - after this content is merged to the 'master' branch, let's cherry-pick the changes over to the '6.2' branch as well.
