Actually we were previously not scheduling an install of rhn-virtualization-host even for a virt host. This has now been changed as of  http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=spacewalk.git;a=commit;h=dbec5dac44262f03bb57ceb812a5e6e9b2a0d6dd

The change basically is a tweak in the activation key logic such that, if you give virt entitlement to an activation key the system that registers using that activation key will have rhn-tools and rh virt child channels included to be scheduled and rhn-virtualization-host package is scheduled to be installed.. 

This issue should thus be fixed in the next iso..

VERIFIED in 5/29 build.
Comment 4 Sayli Karmarkar 2009-07-28 15:55:52 EDT
validated on latest satellite. Provisioning a system as xen host with virt entitlements in kickstart profile results in error-free install of rhn-virtualization-host package.
