Description of problem:
RHN Satellite does not properly support Fujitsu-based (sun4us) SPARC64-V
processors. (Examples include the entire series of Fujitsu PrimePower servers.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN Satellite 4.2.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rhnreg_ks --serverUrl=http://<redacted>/XMLRPC --activationkey=<redacted>
2. Error message as below is produced.
Unsupported server architecture error is returned, despite the fact that a
Fujitsu Solaris system is effectively no different than a Sun Solaris system.
Valid registration with the Satellite server.
bash-2.05# uname -m
bash-2.05# rhnreg_ks --serverUrl=http://<redacted>/XMLRPC
Architecture `sparc-sun4us-solaris' is not supported
Error Class Code: 24
Error Class Info: Unsupported server architecture.

details of what you were trying to do when this error occurred and
details on how to reproduce this problem.
currently the Solaris support with Satellite is for hardware types:
Any Solaris system installed on a hardware platform not of the above will
currently not work.
I have placed this bug under a tracker to triage for the next major product
release, beyond the Satellite 5.0 release.
We did manage to modify the python code to fake a sun4u (instead of sun4us)
arch, and we even successfully imported a patch cluster and deployed it to a system.
