Comment 8 John Sefler 2012-03-16 19:46:29 UTC
Note that the "Library" environment is really a special environment and will not act as the default environment even though it appears to be available when making a call to subscription-manager environments to list the available environments.

My suggestion is for the Katello dev team to rename this special environment to "Library (reserved)" to help indicated that it is special; just an idea.
