Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 962933
The instance multiplier logic applies to virtual guests when it shouldn't
Last modified: 2013-09-30 19:08:29 EDT
Description of problem:
The instance multiplier logic (for example in the quantity scrollers in the gui) applies to virtual guests when it shouldn't. This is according to the design dock here: https://engineering.redhat.com/trac/Entitlement/wiki/InstanceBasedDesign
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
subscription management server: 0.8.7-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run subscription-manager-gui where the fact 'virt.is_guest: True' is set
2. Register to your candlepin
3. Try to adjust the quantity on a subscription that has the instance_multiplier (in the TESTDATA, "Awesome OS Instance Based (Standard Support)" is a good example).
The instance_multiplier logic is enforced on virtual guests.
The instance_multiplier logic is not enforced on virtual guests.
