Subscription Asset Manager - Vmware

Latest response

Hi,

I want to deploy RHEL 6.3 on VMware ESX.
We have 3 Esx
We bought 3 licenses RHEL 1-2 sockets unlimited Guest

I want to use Subscription Asset Manager to save my guests and my physical VM.
To install SAM (katello) I have to register and subscribe first VM.
So this VM consumes one license (of course)

I have created an organization and assigned two licenses.

The VM is install on an esx registered and subscribed (virt-who). Why should I allocate a license for that VM?

Should I buy a special license for Subscription Asset Manager?

What is the procedure to deploy on RHEL vmware?

thank you,

I really need your help.

Hi Julien,

 

Good questions! I'll see if I can find someone to help you out with these.

>> Should I buy a special license for Subscription Asset Manager?

 

There is no need to purchase any separate subscription for Subscription Asset Manager as it is default part of RHEL subscription.

 

>> The VM is install on an esx registered and subscribed (virt-who). Why should I allocate a license for that VM?

 

Registered VM will consume entilement for virtual machine and when you register any system on customer portal, it should consume available subscription.

 

>> What is the procedure to deploy on RHEL vmware?

 

In case of VMWare virtualization environment, you can deploy RHEL VM's and register them as virtual machines on customer portal.

Thanks, Bharat! Voting you up. :)

Thanks,

 

But we use Subscription Asset Manager.

We don't want to register all VM on the RHN (no internet access)

 

So we have downloaded a 'manifest' with 2 Subsriptions and "install it" on SAM

And, so good, we can register and subscribe VM on SAM ;-)

 

Now, on the RHN, we have 1 subscription available and we use it for the VM SAM (Update and RHEL RPM access etc)

it's no good !

 

If we use 3 subscriptions for our manifest, our SAM VM is no longer available for updates on RHN.

 

SAM need a valid subscription on RHN.

 

Please help me .....
