Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 642226
error message 'RHEL Virtualization Channel' for RHEL6 server
Last modified: 2012-04-02 08:23:44 EDT
Description of problem:
There is wrong error message about missing 'RHEL Virtualization Channel' for Rhel6 server. There is no rhel6-VT channel and this message is wrong
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have rhel6, yum groupinstall "Virtualization", reboot
2. have sat540 and channels rhel6 server and rhn tools synced
3. connect rhel6 client into sat540
4. add Virtualization entitlement for this client
there is message:
Could not automatically subscribe the system to the RHEL Virtualization Channel. This channel contains packages required for virtualization. This is most likely caused by a lack of channel entitlements.
Since you added a Virtualization entitlement to the system we also performed some extra steps to ensure your system will be able to manage virtual guests better. See here for more info.
System properties changed for dell-pe800-01.rhts.eng.bos.redhat.com.
there is no error about missing 'RHEL Virtualization Channel.
like a bonus it could install package libvirt which is not in dependencies for group Virtualization nor kvm package.
I installed libvirt, and restarted /etc/init.d/libvirtd
I created kickstart with rhel6 kvm guest and guest was successfully provisioned.
Taking for investigation.
Do not look for VT channel in case of RHEL6 base channel.
For QA: Please make sure adding of Virtualization entitlement still works on older RHEL clients.
PS. Related bug: Bug#656241 (would be nice to ship the fix for both at the same time)
