latest compose, http://download.devel.redhat.com/devel/candidate-trees/RHEL6.1-20110118.0/, has htis when you select basic server.

Comment 3 spandey 2011-01-21 10:32:58 UTC
Verified using following setup 

Beta build : http://download.devel.redhat.com/devel/candidate-trees/RHEL6.1-20110118.0/

python-rhsm and subscription manager rpm installed in basic server option 

moving defect status from Modified to Verified 

Please reopen this if you feel defect is not fixed

Comment 4 J.C. Molet 2011-01-21 15:09:47 UTC
The "basic server" selection always had these packages.  I'm talking about the "Minimal" selection.

This selection would be located (in the graphical install), in the selection box with the text above: "The default installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a basic server install.  You can optionally select a different set of software now."

The 'minimal' option is under the 'Software Development Workstation' option.

From my minimal install:

[root@jmolet-vm4 ~]# rpm -qa | egrep "subscription|rhn"

In this beta, shouldn't the subscription manager be included in any package sets that the rhn tools are?

Comment 5 Dennis Gregorovic 2011-01-21 15:27:54 UTC
The issue is that subscription-manager-cli was renamed to subscription-manager, but comps.xml still had the former listed.  I'll get this fixed for the next compose.

Comment 6 J.C. Molet 2011-01-21 20:39:51 UTC
[root@jmolet-vm4 ~]# rpm -qa | grep subscription

tested as working as of rhsm compose:  RHEL6.1-20110121.0
