Description of problem:
Take a look at:
> Before you create a System Profile, you must create a user account. Red Hat
> recommends that you do so through the website at
> https://rhn.redhat.com/newlogin/, but you may also do so via Red Hat
> Update Agent (up2date).
> New users must select the I don't have a Red Hat login. I need to create
> one. radio button and click the Forward button. Add details about yourself
> and your business to the screen shown in Figure 4.5, “Create a User
> Account”, and identify the methods by which you may be reached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
it is there
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check URL above
Page mentions it is possible to create Red Hat account through up2date
Currently it is *not* possible to create Red Hat account using up2date. Also link provided seems broken (404 error), current version of it seems to be "https://www.redhat.com/wapps/ugc/register.html" or "To create account, follow instructions on https://www.redhat.com/".
Anyway, page mentions up2date only, but that is valid only on RHEL4. If you want to register on RHEL5 or 6, you have to use rhn_register (GUI or TUI version) or rhnreg_ks (CLI version, works on all RHEL4 & 5 & 6).
it still shows
which has the Create a New Login button there and in the text it says
or to create a new account if you do not.
I just checked with rhn_register in RHEL 5.8 and it does not have that button, and neither RHN hosted nor Satellite 5.* support creating user account this way.
Fixed in: Red_Hat_Network_Satellite-Reference_Guide-5.5-web-en-US-4-4.el6eng
Figure 2.4 rhn-reg4.png has been updated.
Could you fix the

paragraph and the following Note to remove any mentions of creating the account via the software?
