Registering active subscription

Latest response

Registered as developer, have subscription confirmed as actve, built a Hyper-V VM as per the instructions, Gen1, Server with GUI, Developer Tools however when I come to register the build and associate it with my subscription the system sits endlessly saying "Fetching list of possible organizations"?

Have I done something wrong somewhere because I cannot see/understand what exactly?

Can anyone shine any light on this please?

Hello Andrew,

This is a hard one, for officially developer subscriptions should be used on physical hardware instead of virtual guests. Off the record: "I do not know what is going on".

Hi Jan Gerrit,

Just out of curiosity : Why do you say "developer subscriptions should be used on physical hardware instead of virtual guests" ? Is there a special reason ? I am running the system successfully in both ways (one is installed on bare metal and one in a KVM virtual machine) for quite a long time. Did I miss something ?

It gives instructions on building RHEL Developer Suite on metal, HyperV, KVM and VMware

I did not know that the subscription policy changed:

https://developers.redhat.com/articles/faqs-no-cost-red-hat-enterprise-linux/

Now states that virtualisation is allowed.

If I attempt to register using my redhat name, instead of email address, it advises me that " is not able to register with any orgs"?

Hi Andrew,

You have to register with your Red Hat login name. When this name is your mail address, you have to use that. :)

Hi Andrew,

Please check whether the network settings are correct within the Hyper-V guest virtual machine. When you have a properly working internet connection, it should work. If it doesn't work with a working internet connection, I recommend to contact Customer Service.

I give up, exactly the same issue with either email address and/or redhat login name. Internet perfect on RedHat VM, Using bridged connection/external virtual swItch which works fine for my Mint/CentOS server. I think I'll just stick with CentOS.

Would appear I'm not the only one to experience this issue: https://access.redhat.com/discussions/2839261

Thanks for all your input chaps, very much appreciated.

Hi Andrew,

You're welcome ! But, why giving up so fast ? :)

FIXED IT! I hadn't specified a company name when completing my developer account setup, as I was signing up as an individual developer I didn't realise it was a required field (wasn't asterix'd either) . Added my employer name and retried and bingo, what a chew one!

Hi Andrew,

That's great news ... now you can enjoy RHEL !

Cheers :)
