Not Subscribed - Installed products are not covered by attached subscriptions. Updates cannot be received

Latest response


I am in the process of setting up a Satellite server. I built it on a RedHat 7.
3 server with Satellite 6.2.

When I set up the server I registered the server with subscription manager.
How when I go to and go to pull down menu Systems and I look at the RedHat Satellite server it says beside Subscription Management the following: "Not Subscribed Installed products are not covered by attached subscriptions. Updates cannot be received"

Underneath that it does say Subscriptions Attached is 1.

I am not sure what exactly is going wrong since I did register. Do I need to run the on this server? Am I not receiving updates from the RedHat Portal. I tried to self register but that did not work. though I am not sure I want to do that - shouldn't we be getting the updates from the Customer Portal?

I have been encountering numerous issues trying to register my servers. The only one what worked for me was when I created a test box and it registered correctly with the, the other three did not go smooth, however it does seem to have registered them.

When I go to Satellite Organizations it does seem to show that the satellite is registered.

So to say the least I am a little confused as it seems to contradict itself.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Patrick, did you get this sorted?

You are on the right track. Where possible it is preferable to have Satellite registered directly with the CDN. The Satellite subscription covers both your RHEL installation and Satellite.

The system has been registered with ID: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxx

# subscription-manager list --available --matches *Satellite*
***This command should list the Satellite subscription. Take note of the Pool ID for next command below***

Successfully attached a subscription for: Red Hat Satellite

Cannot operate this particular system of RHEL8.0 Beta if the states Not Subscribed within (Status) & (Status Details) Not supported by a valid subscription. Do not understand if I am to test the product how can I especially since nothing is supported why should my time be wasted.
