Last modified: 2015-05-29 16:10:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Registering virtual guest to OrgB that running on OrgA requires OrgB to
have appropriate Flex/Regular entitlement even when host have Virtualization
Platform entitlement and guest does not consume any.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Registration fails with message about not having enough subscription
permissions... rhnreg_ks goes like:

Adding either Regular or Flex Software Channel Entitlement for
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)" (in my case, as I was
using RHEL 6 for experimenting) made it work, (no entitlement
was shown as consumed though).
If the guest is for free, why having free entitlement is required?
I expect registration to work even without having >0 entitlements.
