We have just recently purchased new subs for our environment and during the process we were told from our rep that a Satellite specific sub is no longer required. I found this odd and reached out to RH on the phone and they had confirmed this. They said that Satellite is now part of the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server with Smart Management".
If I understand correctly, I can install Satellite 6 on anything with a RHEL sub? And if a Satellite server is virtual, would that not be covered via the VDC sub? I cannot find any document that explains this or confirms on paper (web) about the subscription change.
Also the documentation for the install will now have to be updated:
