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 220.127.116.11. Installing virt-who for VMWare

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.
already documented in another guide
