When subscribing systems via Red Hat Satellite 6 on a supported hypervisor using virtual datacenter (vDC) subscriptions, occasionally the guests do not properly attach a subscription, and are unable to use content.

In /var/log/rhsm.log, the following error message may be displayed:

Guest's host does not match owner of pool
