Description Amanda Carter 2013-05-16 17:42:32 UTC
Description of problem:

The subscription management 1.0 guide states that virt-who should be installed on VCenter for VMWare users, but I'm pretty sure that's incorrect as I understand that it must be run on a RHEL machine.

See Installing virt-who for VMWare


Comment 1 Michael Stead 2013-05-23 12:58:42 UTC
Correct. virt-who must run on a machine that is capable of registering to candlepin, as it requires a valid identity cert to communicate with candlepin. Therefore, it must be able to run subscription-manager to do so.

virt-who must then be configured to talk to VCenter in order to fetch its host/guest mappings to send to candlepin.
