3.2. Subscribing to the Required Entitlements

Install a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5, 6.6, 6.7, or 7 system. Register the system and subscribe to the required entitlements.

Procedure 3.1. Subscribing to Required Entitlements Using Subscription Manager

  1. Register your system with the Content Delivery Network, entering your Customer Portal Username and Password when prompted:
    # subscription-manager register
  2. Find the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization subscription pools and note down the pool IDs.
    # subscription-manager list --available
  3. Use the pool identifiers located in the previous step to attach the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization entitlements to the system:
    # subscription-manager attach --pool=poolid
  4. Disable all existing repositories:
    # subscription-manager repos --disable=*
  5. Enable the required repositories:
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6:

      Important

      For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, the ovirt-hosted-engine-setup package is provided by the rhel-6-server-rhevm-3.5-rpms repository. If you only have one Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization entitlement, you will need to attach the entitlement to the host first. After you have downloaded the ovirt-hosted-engine-setup package, remove the subscription so you can reattach it to the virtual machine to be used as the Manager. See https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Subscription_Management/1/html/RHSM/sub-cli.html for more information on how to remove a single product subscription.
