Chapter 6. Subscription management
6.1. Notable changes to subscription management
Merged system purpose commands under the
subscription-manager syspurpose command
Previously, there were two different commands to set system purpose attributes;
subscription-manager. To unify all the system purpose attributes under one module, all the
usage commands from subscription-manager have been moved to the new submodule,
subscription-manager commands outside the new submodule are deprecated. The separate package (
python3-syspurpose) that provides the
syspurpose command line tool has been removed in RHEL 9.
This update provides a consistent way to view, set, and update all system purpose attributes using a single command of subscription-manager. This command replaces all the existing system purpose commands with their equivalent versions available as a new subcommand. For example,
subscription-manager role --set SystemRole becomes
subscription-manager syspurpose role --set SystemRole and so on.
For complete information about the new commands, options, and other attributes, see the
SYSPURPOSE OPTIONS section in the
subscription-manager man page or Configuring system purpose using the subscription manager command line tool.
virt-who now uses
/etc/virt-who.conf for global options instead of
In RHEL 9, the global options for the
virt-who utility on your system are stored in the
/etc/virt-who.conf file. Therefore, the
/etc/sysconfig/virt-who file is not being used any more, and has been removed.
